Publisher's Synopsis

The familiar fable of the tortoise and the hare gets a charming and funny new spin.
Barbara Hendricks has entered a running race … but what was she thinking?! After all, she's a tortoise - and everyone knows tortoises are the slowest of the slow. But for some reason, Lorraine - her best friend and owner - believes in her, and inspires her to train a little more each day. And when race day arrives, Lorraine's support is enough to stop Barbara popping back into her shell. ln fact, Barbara soon discovers that with encouragement (and a bit of race day luck!), anything is possible!

Howard Calvert's dry and funny first-person narration is paired with Karen Obuhanych's vibrant and luscious artwork in this sweet origin story full of surprises.
