The hare, complete with jogging outfit and sunglasses, trips over the tortoise. The animals who gather for the race carry signs, each cheering on his or her contestant. The hare here returns during the race to see how the tortoise is doing and runs some circles around him. That occurs after he has slowed from running to a walk. In fact, he has returned because he is bored. Then he gets bored of teasing the tortoise. He deliberately sleeps near the finish line in order to make the tortoise see him win. A bunny in the crowd faints to see what is happening at the finish-line. The victory speech of this tortoise is It doesn't matter how slow or fast you are, as long as you do your best. Does that moral really fit with this telling? This twelve-page stiffboard book has its own pack of six magic crayons in the upper right corner, and each of the pages is cut to fit around the pack of crayons. The special feature of this series is that you can color the pages with the magic crayons and then wipe them clean again. Aesop's fables get around!
