2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews on August 24, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is really fun, updated retelling of a beloved tale, The Tortoise and the Hare.

Nate Tortoise is trying to enjoy a peaceful meal when the quiet restaurant he's eating at turns into excitement over the entrance of Lever Lapin. Lever claims to be the greatest, fastest racer around. He's also not very humble or as smart as Nate, so when Nate challenges him to a race he gladly accepts.

This race is much like the classic story. The hare, Lever Lapin is speedy and leaves Nate in the dust. Unlike the hare who falls asleep, Lever Lapin can't pass up an opportunity to talk about himself with his fans. In so doing he misses his chance to beat Nate at race that clearly was one Lever should have won.

I think this is story that elementary school aged kids would enjoy, as well as parents. Kevin adds enough humor to the story for adults to enjoy, and keeps his text and story to a length that will keep young readers engaged with his story.

Funny adaptation of the Tortoise and the Hare -- the Hare is REALLY overbearing and obnoxious, and the tortoise gets annoyed and mutters out loud... and is overheard... and just like that, the race is on.

God lessons in humility and and non-enviousness. Wonderful illustrations.

Great rabbit whiskers turned mustache.
