Abstract
Originally published in Catalan in 1993 by La Galera S.A. Editorial. This is a nicely constructed children's pamphlet of some thirty-two pages. Notice the differing silhouettes of the two characters on the early and late green pages that flank the story. There are several unusual twists within this version. The prize is a huge cabbage just outside the town to which the two are racing. The hare here stops to eat and then runs on. He then stops to drink and falls asleep. He wakes up as the tortoise passes him. Then, in an unprecedented development, the hare spends the night having dinner and sleeping with relatives. He begins again only in the morning. This seems to be the only fable in the series, advertised near the end of the booket and again on the back cover.
