This companion to the Caldecott Medal-winning The Lion & the Mouse is Jerry Pinkney's most stunning masterpiece yet. Even the slowest tortoise can defeat the quickest hare, and even the proudest hare can learn a timeless lesson from the most humble tortoise: Slow and steady wins the race! Here is a superbly rendered journey from starting line to finish that embodies the bravery, perseverance, and humility we can all find inside ourselves.
"Jerry Pinkney has become one of my most favorite artists. There is so much depth and detail to his work, I have literally sat for hours just soaking in his beautiful illustrations. I cannot praise him enough nor can I recommend him highly enough. Come in and look at the book--I'm betting you'll leave the store with it, and perhaps at couple of his other works as well."
