The race is on--the race, quick as lightning, against the tortoise, who not only moves slowly but carries his entire house on his back. Off they go. In a flash, the hare is yards away, flying over the grass. The tortoise has barely moved. Does he have any chance of winning?

Brian Wildsmith is one of the most venerable figures in children's illustration today and celebrates over forty years of publishing with OUP - a truly remarkable achievement.Review:
`With the Fables of La Fontaine, Wildsmith turned Wordsmith, retelling the tales with a simplicity that enhances the complexity of the illustrations. In The Hare and the Tortoise, the animals are seen against dazzling, semi-abstract backgrounds, with pinks and purples dotted with shimmering,
close-toned blobs of viridian green and cerulean blue that dance before your eyes.
Joanne Carey, The Guardian
