dc.description.abstractWhat a treasure! This sideways book is an enchanting expansion of TH, with Jones' special feature of a peep hole in the text pages between full-page illustrations. The peep hole works very effectively spotlighting elements in the pages both coming and going. The telling is traditional but well amplified. Thus, e.g., a hedgehog accompanies the tortoise. The hare awakens so frantic that he carries his new running shoes with him across the finish line! The story early establishes that hare is proud, competitive, and selfishly insensitive. He tells spectators just before his nap that this race is really beneath his dignity. It is ten miles long and lasts from noon until early evening. A wonderful gift!en_US
