|Reviews||Jimi Hare is fast and Jamey Tortoise is smart. Everyone avoids them, calls them names, and demeans their talents as tricks. When Jimi and Jamey sign up for a race, one practices while the other plans. The tortoise is told that reversals, such as the winner who loses, make the most satisfying newspaper story. The hare hears that the largest crowd gets more attention than the loudest cheers. On the day of the race, the tortoise travels on bus, train, and plane, while the hare dances, runs, and invents new stunts to draw the crowd. Though Jimi Hare crosses the finish line first, all who know Aesops fable understand the headlineWINNER LOSES! LOSER WINS! Giving a new twist to an old tale, these two lonely and talented characters eventually become friends. Any reading of this tale will depend on knowledge of Aesops fable. Illustrations are rendered in oil paints showing bright animated characters against textured backgrounds. Occasional rhymes (Because he always won, they said he was no fun) enliven the text. This contemporary retelling should spark interesting discussions. -SLJ, "Brew-Hammond's colorful descriptions of Ghana and emotionally honest style capture the reader's attention from the first page." --J.L. King,New York Timesbestselling author|
