The Hare and the Tortoise: A Fable by Aesop

Gerald Rose, Author Aladdin Paperbacks $3.95 (17p) ISBN 978-0-689-71197-8
These four tales introduce four classic fables: in The Lion and the Mouse a lion lets a mouse go and the mouse later returns the favor; in The Raven and the Fox a raven learns to beware of flattery; in Wolf! Wolf! a boy realizes that people who do not always tell the truth will not always be believed; and in The Hare and the Tortoise the tortoise rather smugly relates that sometimes it is better to be slow but sure. Rose has simplified the text without being condescending in his use of language; his cartoony characters wear a variety of funny expressions. An easily accessible and warm-hearted collection. Ages 3-6. (March)
