The title-page proclaims Story based on the Aesop's Fable 'The Hare and the Tortoise.' This little (5¾ x 6¼) booklet has seen a great deal of use and wear! The seller's description aptly calls it a feel good book. Whenever Henry Hare starts praising himself, his friend Theresa Tortoise just says That's nice. When, however, he boasts once too often, she is tired of it and challenges him to a race. Old Samuel Owl comments early Fast is not always best. The race plays out in traditional fashion.
