The Tortoise and The Hare
Jerry Pinkney has a gift for taking fairy tales and fables to a different level. This is the companion to the Caldecott winning masterpiece THE LION AND THE MOUSE. The Tortoise and the Hare is a well known fable with a strong oral tradition. Pinkney embraces the simplest version of the text and celebrates the story with his rich, detailed illustrations. A wide variety of art materials are used to create a depth and texture to each depiction. THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE is set in the desert with a delightful cast of softly colored creatures that fill the pages as the hare and the tortoise have their epic race. A fantastic version of this classic story.
