Here is an extra copy of this pamphlet. Two fables show up in this collection of 20 fairy tales done in simple fashion for children. The booklet has eight pages. The characters are pictured as male (hare) and female (tortoise) from the start. Apparently, the tortoise takes a break to eat carrots during the race. He also smells the flowers and soon falls asleep. The best picture in the book may be that of the hare, awakened, walking briskly toward the finish. He is in for a surprise! Two morals are announced: "No hay que burlarse jamás de los demás" and "Con constancia, paciencia y firmeza puedes alcanzar el exito." Simple stuff!
