The Great Race of the Tortoise and the Hare
Jack Neary

"The King will not be down for breakfast!" With this proclamation all the critters in the kingdom know that the throne will have to be filled by either mean and nasty Princess Laverne or her sweet and cuddly sister, Princess Shirley. By tradition, the favorite pet of each Princess must participate in a great race, the winning pet owner becoming the Queen. So it's Laverne's swift and sassy Harry the Hare versus Shirley's slow and slower Terry the Tortoise in this fast-moving, extremely funny rendition of one of the most beloved fables of all time!
