Many of us have enjoyed reading the classic Aesop’s fable, Hare and Tortoise. Alison Murray has created a new version of this classic that is a delight to read. Right from the start the reader is involved, we get to stop the Hare and Tortoise and learn about their characteristics and personality traits. The race begins as predicted with the energetic over-confident Hare and the ever steady Tortoise racing to see who will get to the finish line first. There is no mystery to this fable since we are aware the Tortoise always wins the race with his diligence and patience. We can, however, enjoy a bit of humor and creativity in every page with the colorful and large illustrations than are easy for children to interpret.
