A brilliant twist on the much-loved story of The Hare and the Tortoise, masterfully brought to life by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo and Zog. When Hare teases Hedgehog about his little legs, Hedgehog is so upset he challenges the long-legged hare to a race. But Hedgehog has got little legs and can’t possibly beat Hare, especially in all his fancy running gear… Together with his wife, can Hedgehog come up with a plan to beat the snooty hare, and prove that hedgehogs are cleverest of all?
