With Barry Downard's zany photographs, this is a rip-roaring take on the timeless tale of the tortoise and the hare. Tom Tortoise challenges Flash Harry Hare, and it becomes a media event extraordinaire--the race of the century! But while Flash Harry gets distracted signing autographs for his adoring fans, stopping for photo ops, and snacking, Tom Tortoise keeps going, slowly and steadily, to win the race. The amusing text is complemented by photos that will have readers laughing out loud--and for kids who really pay attention, there are even more funny details embedded in the pictures.
