**Reviews**

“"A fun read-aloud and a break from the routine moral." School Library Journal

"An entertaining choice that will introduce children to the fable and show those familiar with it how traditional tales can be expanded." Kirkus Reviews

"Crow employs amusing imagery...and the story is laden with playful sound effects that will add plenty of punch to readalouds, with the fast tempo providing additional energy. Forshay’s illustrations, in saturated opaque colors in cheerful hues, offer amusing comic modeling in her animal cast...those familiar with Aesop’s version will cheer for the famous pair along the way." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Deep inside the city was a hip and happy hare.
He was zippy, sometimes lippy, takin' taxis everywhere.

Way out in the country was a tortoise calm and cool.
He was quite the mellow fellow chillin' out beside the pool.

Kids will love to move and groove with this dynamic duo as they hop and pop towards the finish line in this hip-hopping retelling of the classic tale.
