There is quite a difference in this retelling of the classic tale. This time, not only do we meet the fast but foolish hare & the slow but sensible tortoise, be we also meet those who witnessed the famous race. Aesop's original lesson about the victory of perseverance over arrogance is enhanced as we learn about the relative speeds of a host of other animals.
