    Once upon a time, there was a tortoise and a hare. Tortoise was friendly and quiet. He did everything slowly. Hare was flashy and rude. He did everything quickly. Hare was certain that when he challenged Tortoise to a race, he would be the winner. But things didn't turn out as Hare expected in this humorous adaptation of the classic Aesop's fable.
