Here is a superbly rendered journey from starting line to finish that embodies the bravery, perseverance, and humility we can all find inside ourselves.show more

Review quote

"A worthy follow-up....The richly detailed illustrations are lively and humorous, but what makes this retelling particularly ingenious is Pinkney's use of the oft-quoted moral....slow and steady wins the race!"--The Horn Bookshow more
