Slow and steady wins the race in this classic fable by Aesop and illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.

When Tortoise says to Hare, “I bet I can beat you in a running race!” all the animals laugh. Tortoise puts one foot in front of the next. Hare stops to nibble carrot tops and cabbages. . . . Who will have the last laugh?

Bernadette’s vibrant palette and thoughtful illustrations encourage readers to move at a tortoise’s pace to admire every detail.
