A warm, funny story about friendship, kindness, and just how much you miss when you're always in a hurry.

"An inspiring spin on the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare"

Harry learns to take time to notice and enjoy his surroundings. The text and images are comical and lively, with a grainy line conveying speed as well as cosy indoor scenes and pretty landscapes, painted with flecks and washes. Vignettes at the end show the companionship of shared unhurried activities such as fishing and yoga.
