Tho va Rua: The Hare and the Tortoise
This is a fine bilingual booklet of 12 pages. The art is especially detailed and supportive of the text. The text appears in a few lines on each page. The English lacks capitals to start its sentences and sometimes is not idiomatic, as the moral exemplifies: Perseverance wins the success. This hare is illustrated to show some strong moods, from his beginning aggressivity to his anger and disdain as he moves away from the starting line. His panic then in his frantic last effort and finally his disappointment are very well expressed. The back cover illustrates a fine looking series of The Fables of Aesop and I am making efforts to get the whole set.
