Nobel Prize–recipient Toni Morrison and Slade Morrison breathe new life into a classic fable. In the well-known tale of “The Tortoise and the Hare,” everyone remembers that “slow and steady wins the race”—or does it? In this energetic retelling of a favorite fable, it’s the speedy Hare who crosses the finish line first, but it’s Tortoise who has the tale to tell when he discovers that the race, not the winning, is what matters most. This witty reframing of a traditional message prompts readers to decide for themselves what really makes a winner.
