Product Details


Burningham’s new text is typically unsentimental; school-age boys will probably find it outrageously funny.
—The New York Times Book Review

Young audiences will relish the outcome of this simple trickster tale and likely be startled into laughter by its edgy language.
—Kirkus Reviews

An entertaining, pithy story… [G]orgeous, witty art. … A welcome revival.
—The Horn Book

[A] classic brains-over-brawn tale, made memorable by Burningham’s signature illustrations and witty text (poor Hare is called everything from a “little runt” to a “little weed”). It’s oh-so-satisfying when quick-moving Hare gets the last laugh, and Burningham’s many fans will be happy (hoppy?) to introduce this spiffed-up story to a new generation.
