The Tortoise and the Hare is a classic Aesop's fable retold by Bernadette Watts—one of Europe’s most beloved fairy-tale artists! The Tortoise and the Hare has been a favorite of children for generations. Watts' charming retelling and beautiful illustrations bring warmth to this timeless tale. 

When Tortoise says to Hare, “I bet I can beat you in a running race!” everyone laughs. Tortoise moves along slow but steady, putting one foot in front of the other, while hare, fast when he wants to be, stops to nibble carrot tops and cabbages. . . . Who will have the last laugh?
