Abstract
This is my sixth book by Watts dating back to 1992. It was first published and copyrighted in 2015 by Nord-Süd Verlag AG, Gossau Zürich under the title "Der Hase und die Schildkröte." This lovely oversized edition starts and ends in unusual ways. The tortoise takes the initiative at a friendly picnic of the animals. The hare dawdles while eating along the way. One of the best moments in the illustrations has him gorging on lettuce and smiling. Watts is again very good at filling in the illustrations with various little animals, plants, and other objects scattered around the scene. In this version the passing tortoise hears the hare snoring! Unusual at the end is that the hare is the first to congratulate the tortoise. They leave happily together. "It was my own fault."
