dc.description.abstractFirst published in Great Britain in 2015 by Orchard Books. London. This is a large-format -- almost 10" x 12" -- children's book. It sets a young reader up well for things to come in the race when it describes hare in terms that will come to play later. His ears are accustomed to the sound of animals cheering, and his paws are used to crossing the finish line in first place. "And he has NEVER been known to resist a carrot." Similarly, Tortoise will always do her best. "I may be slow but I'll give it a go." A map gives a sense of the race's phases, including a carrot patch. A few nibbles lead to a tiny nap. Hare dreams of animals cheering: there is the clue. He wakes up to that cheering and tries to catch up but loses by a breath. Big broad illustrations and rhyming couplets help tell this tale well. Tortoise consoles Hare at the end: "You might just win next time" and then suggests a race to the lettuce patch. The endpapers reproduce in monochrome the map of the race.en_US
