Abstract
Torty here hides in his shell and hopes that the athletic Hare would just go away. Hare persists in harassing Torty and so ends up initiating the suggestion of a race. While Hare's athletic chums come to cheer him on, Torty also has his crew, koala bears and sloths. This version has sweating Hare getting blistered feet during the long race while Torty remains cool. Hare's thus sees his nap here a "breather." Torty comments after the race finishes "I am not speedy, it is true, but I know how to SEE THINGS THROUGH." The slightly scatological element here comes in the recipe for gym-loving Hare's athletic shake, including badger poo and weasel pee. Rhyming couplets throughout. 48 pages. 5¼" x 8".
