Music by Erik Koskinen. The lyrics and music are printed at the end of the book. Rhyming quatrains take the reader and listener through the fable. The artist pictures the hare cleverly as having the same look on his face through about the first five pages. The key moment comes when the rabbit "thought he could relax." "Success comes not from what you say but how your talents are used!" Hmmm…. Children will like the image of the rabbit trying to catch up at the end, where his legs become like fast-turning wheels.
