I reviewed another book in this lovely Aesop’s fables reboot series earlier this year.

The tortoise and the hare is my favourite fable and in this version it has been given a wonderful modern overhaul. The illustrations are bright and engaging with paper cut-outs throughout and the text is great fun to read aloud. “As the sun began to set, Hare woke up, startled. “THE RACE!” he gasped!”IMG_1823

An excellent introduction to fables and Aesop for a young
audience.

Check out The tortoise and the hare at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy The tortoise and the hare from Fishpond.
