The Big Race by Shirley Glaser
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When Harry Hare and Tommy Tortoise decide to have a race, Tommy takes off like the wind. In this version, Tommy passes some world-famous sights, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Egyptian pyramids, the geysers of Yellowstone National Park and many more. But when he grows weary and stops for a nap - guess who manages to beat him to the finish? In this clever format, though, the end is also the beginning as the book turns over to keep the story continuing again and again.
