The Tortoise and the Hare and Other Stories

|dc.description.abstract||This 8½" x 11" pamphlet contains TH, TMCM, and FS. The text uses a variety of sizes, bolding, and typefaces to emphasize particular words. The art is big, like the pamphlet itself. In TH, the tortoise has a mouse rider. Eating dandelions leads the hare to sleep. The tortoise wins by a nose. TMCM is characterized by clever dialogue, with the "host" answering the "guest" in both places. There is a softened ending here. The town host understands the country guest. "Better a little in safety, than an abundance surrounded by danger." In FS, the stork is a newcomer. Her bowl at the fox's meal is too shallow. The fox thinks she has forgotten when her invitation comes to him. "Now you know how I felt," she says to him when he cannot get at the food she serves. The fox is sorry and promises never to do it again. Good versions of these stories!||en_US|
