The Hare and the Tortoise
Here is a new series from Blackwell's containing maybe ten titles, about six of which are fables. I just ordered the other four fable editions in paperback from the publisher. The story itself runs from 3 through 21 with vivid full-page illustrations. Hare here is marked by short lines all over his body. Tortoise wears a helmet with goggles perched over the visor. Again, a first single page is followed by illustrations on two-page spreads. Tadpole Tales are meant for the very young: newly independent readers according to the last page. Two pages before that page of explanations offer puzzles. Nice work!
