The Tortoise and the Hare: An Aesop's Fable

 
9780711218055: The Tortoise and the Hare: An Aesop's Fable

One day Tortoise overhears Hare boasting, "I can run so fast I leave the wind behind." "What nonsense," says Tortoise to Hare. ""I'll give you a race." Hare falls about laughing, but all the same he accepts the challenge. As they set off, Hare bounds down the lane, with Tortoise creeping along behind. Hare obviously has the natural advantage, so he stops for an elevenses of carrots, is overcome by sleepiness and takes a long nap. Soon Tortoise has crept slowly but surely past him and wins the race - just! Aesop's most well-known fable - pitting boastfulness and conceit against sharp wits and doggedness - is simply but delightfully retold by Angela McAllister and is illustrated by Jonathan Heale's stylish woodcuts to create an animal classic.

About the Author:

ANGELLA MCALLISTER trained as an illustrator and several of her picture books were published by ABC before she switched to writing. JONATHAN HEALE studied typography and fine art at the Royal College of Art. He now works in oils and woodcuts, and his hand-painted china is much sought after.

Review:

"The large, colored woodcuts make Boark and his Lady Muck come to life in all their porky beauty ..."
