This striking version of the Tortoise and the Hare retold and illustrated by Helen Ward received the Association for Library .

This striking version of the Tortoise and the Hare retold and illustrated by Helen Ward received the Association for Library Service to Children's notable award. The book's type design rolls, leaps, and plunges along with the characters. A section at the end of the book provides interesting facts about the audience of animal spectators represented in the artwork.

The Tortoise and the Hare is the third Living Books PC-ROM Game. Being based on the famous fable by Aesop, it was retold by Mark Schlitchting as an original story for the Living Books series (hence the first Living Books game to not be based on any existing books), and the CD-ROM along with its included paperback storybook were both released in 1993.

Helen Ward''s retelling of this classic tale includes an appendix listing all the animals featured and their various speed . The pictures in this book are very vivid and beautiful. I really like it but my kids didn't seem to think it was great. I'll keep it and see if they like it when they are older.

After 22 years as an illustrator, Helen Ward admits that it's a lonely job. "Although I reckoned on the poverty . "Although I reckoned on the poverty, I didn't anticipate the isolation," she says with a rueful smile. But you can't help feeling that she thrives on that solitude. I'm not a joiner-in, never have been. I avoid book 'events', and talking about myself is an ordeal. But surely, as an award-winning illustrator with more than 20 books to her name, she has to do these things sometimes? "Yes of course.

The pictures in this book are very vivid and beautiful. I really like it but my kids didn't seem to think it was great. I'll keep it and see if they like it when they are older. If you have very young kids you may want to find a version with pictures a bit more simple.

What I loved about this book was the variety of animals it featured, everything from a cheetah to a giraffe, to a sloth and a lorikeet! Not to mention that at the end of the book are little facts about each of the animals - like which is the slowest animal in the world, the fastest, etc.
The illustrations were quite nice as well - pretty accurate, but still with a child-friendly cuteness.

The story itself is pretty much the same as always but it includes a few fun twists because of the variety of animals. I can't help but feel a little sorry for the hare, but it is a story of consequences, so it dose have its place.

If you can find this, I'd definitely pick it up - it's a fun treat on every page.

I cannot believe this is not an award winning book. I have read many children's books lately, and to me this ranks right up there with the Caldecotts and other award winners. The illustrations are wonderful, depicting the animals realistically yet with very expressive almost human faces. The story has some nice humorous twists to it, and I found it very entertaining. There is even an educational aspect to it, as it includes an index of sorts to the animals depicted and a little information about them. I think any child would be delighted with this book, and might even be inspired to further reading about animals.

Helen Ward's illustrations are fabulous and she has retold this classic charmingly and engagingly. I am more and more impressed by Australian illustrators and writers. This is a must have.
