‘Look at me!’ said the Hare to the other animals. ‘Just look how fast I can run.’

The Hare ran across a field as fast as he could. All the animals agreed that yes the Hare was very fast. The Hare ran back.

See, he shouted. Im not even out of breath.

‘Yeah, that was fast,’ said a Fox.

‘So who wants a race?’ said the Hare. ‘Anybody think they could beat me?’

None of the animals spoke.

See, said the Hare. Youre all too scared to even try.

Ill have a go, said the Tortoise.

The Hare laughed. You? The slowest creature in the whole world? Im not wasting my time racing a Tortoise.

Whats the matter? said the Tortoise. Scared I might beat you?

Some of the animals laughed at that so the Hare said, Alright then, Tortoise. Lets have a race...right now...then well see whos laughing.

Not today, said the Tortoise. Well race next week. Got to do a bit of training first.

Next morning the animals watched the Tortoise do his ‘training’. First he did

some gentle stretching exercises to warm himself up... ...and then he started to

run.

‘Has he started running yet?’ asked the Fox.

Hard to tell with Tortoises, said the Badger. Hes definitely moving. Is he? said the Fox.

‘Tortoise, are you sure about this?’ said the Crow. ‘I mean the Hare is very fast and you…well…’

Dont worry, said the Tortoise. This is just day one. Ill speed up. Youll see. On the day of the race crowds of animals came to watch. The Tortoise slowly made his way to the starting line and then suddenly......the Hare arrived at top speed wearing a brand new track suit and four expensive-looking trainers.

‘The race starts here.’ said the Fox pointing to a line on the ground. ‘And ends at that tree on the other side of the field. First one to touch the tree is the winner.’

Right, lets get on with it, said the Hare. Ready Tortoise? Ready to see some real speed?

Im ready, said the Tortoise.

‘Ready, steady...go!’ said the Fox and the race began.

The Hare roared off then stopped and looked back. The Tortoise was still crossing the starting line. The Hare ran back to the Tortoise.

Didnt you hear him say go? You can start, you know.

‘I have started,’ said the Tortoise.

Look, said the Hare. Youre going so slowly Im going to have a rest. Might even have a little sleep. Ill finish the race when I wake up and still beat you by miles.

The Hare lay down in the sun and fell asleep. The Tortoise kept going. Slowly, steadily he moved across the field and by evening time he was getting close to the finishing tree. Still the Hare slept on and now the animals started to get excited.

‘You know what? I think he might win,’ said a Rabbit.

I cant believe it, said the Badger. The Tortoise might actually win.

The animals started to get excited and as the Tortoise got close to the finishing tree they started to cheer.

‘Come on Tortoise,’ they shouted. ‘Nearly there. Keep going old friend. Keep going.’

But the noise of the cheering crowd woke up the Hare. He looked across the field, saw the Tortoise about to reach the tree and in a flash he was running.

The Tortoise heard the Hare thundering up behind him but he kept going...and going...and suddenly he was there. Just in time the Tortoise touched the tree with his nose. Hed done it. The Tortoise had beaten the Hare fair and square.

There you go, said the Badger. Slow and steadys sometimes better than fast and flashy.

Not fair, said the Hare. I was asleep. We have to run the race again. Its not fair.
