La liebre y la tortuga: Versión de la fábula de Esopo
This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. It is a Spanish version of The Tortoise and the Hare: A Retelling of Aesop's Fable in the same series, but this book was published two years later. As I wrote there, the illustrations are painted with watercolor. The story is well told. Text and illustrations make for a lively telling of the fable. The idea of the race comes from the tortoise. The hare had passed by him earlier on the way to visit his sister. When he returns, he finds that the tortoise has not advanced much. Are you still way back here? Then the tortoise suggests a race. When he gets well beyond the tortoise, the hare stops to snack on both carrots and berries and decides to take a siesta in the shade. The key repeated phrase in this version is a paso lento pero constante. The cover illustration selects a good detail from the very moment of the suggestion of a race on 9. Reinforced library binding.
