    One thought on “The Great Race”

    1. The book "The Great Race" by Kevin O'Malley is a very cute take on the tale of the Tortoise and the Hare. Within this version of the Tortoise and the Hare, the author makes a stab at the US and other western's culture obsession with the celebrity. The Hare is more of celebrity than an athlete. He is adored by women and gets special treatment wherever he goes. Also, in this version, the Tortoise isnt a wise "do gooder" that wants to teach Hare a lesson. This version he seems a bit spiteful and je [...]

    2. Kevin O'Malley has written and illustrated a new twist on the tortoise versus the hare tale. Lever Lapin the hare is definitely a cartoonish character, full of himself while charming others. Nate Tortoise is just as slow and bland as you would imagine, but with the occasional sharp and witty remark aimed at egotistical Lever. Of course, there is the requisite race, but it is one-sided - you only get to see Lever be foolish and waste time. You assume that Nate slowly but surely made his way to th [...]

    3. 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 th [...]

    4. This is a very clever take on the classic tale of The Tortoise and the Hare: An Aesop Fable. The story has a modern flair and the illustrations are fabulous. The narrative is short and entertaining - a fun book to read aloud. We loved the word play with the characters' names at the end. Overall, we really enjoyed reading this book together and we will look for more books by Kevin O'Malley at our local library.

    5. A fun retelling of Tortoise and the Hare. In this version, the hare named Lever Lapin is a famous (and very proud and boastful) runner. Nate, the tortoise, is so sick of everyone drooling over Lever that he says he can beat him in a race. The morale of the story is a clever pun. This could be a fun story to use to discuss pride/humility. The illustrations make Lever appear really haughty and not cute and cuddly (as I typically picture rabbits). They certainly help emphasize that Lever is the ant [...]

    6. Pleasant and funny little retelling of the tortise and the hare. Silly jokes and over-the-top characters give it an updated feel.The art has a very traditional kids-book-anthropomorphic-animals look. It's pretty fun, and there are some excellent sight gags tucked away.For lower-elementary school kids, this would make an excellent read-along.

    7. Tortoise and the hare fable updated. Best for elementary audiences due to amount of text and storyline. Some jokes will hit the adults in the audience when the miss the children. I personally wasn't feeling this one enough to read it aloud but other librarians will surely embrace it.

    8. copyright 2011 any ageThis is the story of the tortoise and the hare. Lever Lapin is the rabbit and Nate Tortoise is the hare. One is slow, the other is very, very fast. I really like this version of the story.

    9. Hil - larious!! I loved this story about the tortoise and the hare! The little puns made me laugh out loud!! This book is not just for little kids even though it looks like it. Little kids will love it, but so will the big kids that actually get the little inside jokes. Enjoy!

    10. I love re-imagined fairytales/fables/etc. This is a very nicely done retelling of the classic "tortoise and the hare"

    11. Had to help my ESL students understand some of the references, but we all agreed Hare lost because he was "show offy."

    12. fun retelling of tortoise and hare fable. it's a little too mean spirited for my taste, though. plus there is a terrible typo toward the end that surely the kids don't notice, but it really bugs me!

    13. Clever wordplay and hilarious illustrations make this a very enjoyable read. A great example for older readers on word choice in writing.

    14. A punny take on the Tortoise and the Hare. Could be used during a unit on traditional literature and updated classics.
