Abstract
Here is the paperbound version of the English book first published by the same publisher in 2015. That edition accompanied the German edition copyrighted in 2015 by Nord-Süd Verlag AG, Gossau Zürich under the title "Der Hase und die Schildkröte." As I mention of the hardbound English edition, 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. The hare even stops for a long chat with his friend the fox. 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."
