It’s hard to tell a well-known tale in a fresh, new way, but Alison Murray accomplishes that in her version of these famous competitors … A friendly ending wraps up this excellent piece of bookmaking and reminds us there is more to life than winning-maybe a shared lettuce patch?


An absolutely successful retelling of the classic tale; great for storytimes and recommended for any fable collection
