One day Tortoise overhears Hare boasting about how fast he is and challenges Hare to a race. Hare obviously has the natural advantage, so he stops for a snack of carrots and falls asleep. Soon Tortoise has crept slowly but surely past him and manages to just win the race. 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. This dual-language Polish/English edition is perfect for young English speakers learning Polish, or vice versa.
