Here is an updated version of the 2001 Bright Sparks edition. The book no longer makes reference to a place for The Complete Works, as it had there. The covers have lost one complexifying element in their design: a section near the spine done in a solid color and featuring mention of Bright Sparks. The title-page and the spine now have a P that they did not have before. The story is the same, and so I repeat my comment from there. This version of TH sets out to have fun with the story. After the race's start, we read this of Hare: When there was no one to show off for, he slowed down just a bit. When Tortoise--unusually upright in this version, I think--comes upon Hare sleeping, he does not wake him and says He must have a reason for sleeping. He would only be angry if I woke him!
