Jerry Pinkney has taken the well-known story of The Tortoise & The Hare and with his stunning drawings has made the story dynamic. Pinkney’s story takes place in the desert filled with pops of color, and with a vibrant cast of animals cheering on the race. The drawing of the tortoise portrays him as having grit, determination, yet also a sense that he is enjoying the race as he makes his way through the desert. With help from his desert friends our hero makes his way past the sleeping hare and across the finish line showing a child the value of self-effacement and perseverance.
