Thank you! With luminous mixed media pictures, a short, carefully meted-out text and a Southwestern U. A persevering tortoise and a speedy but arrogant hare tackle a challenging race course that includes rocky elevations and a water crossing. Meanwhile the tortoise, closely observed by desert denizens, passes the slumbering hare and wins by a length. Bejeweled with blooming cactuses and buzzing with bees, reptiles, mammals and more, the desert tableaux will engross readers. Lush, encompassing endpapers feature, in the front, a layout of the racecourse and, in the rear, the reveling animals, with the hare, still stunned, gazing out at readers. A captivating winner—start to finish!
