Hurry Up and Slow Down by Layn Marlow. “Hare is always in a hurry. Tortoise, however, is not.” It is a familiar tale, and a fable well and often told, but this adaptation is just as charming, delightful, and entertaining. There is no “race” in this version but we can see clearly, from the pictures and text, the stark contrast between hare’s fast paced, impatient lifestyle, and Tortoise’s easy-going, mellow one. After playing catch-up with Hare for most of the day, Tortoise finally gets things calmed down a bit, although in the end, Hare is on board with taking things a bit slower.This is an enjoyable read for all young children, and a nice new spin on an old fable.
