The Tortoise and the Hare

Genre : Folk Tale with a twist

Suitable for : lower to middle primary

Aesop’s Fable of the Tortoise and the Hare underlines ‘more haste, less speed’, and ‘pride comes before a fall’. Mark Puddy’s version includes these elements with a twenty first century twist; rather than having the Hare take a nap in the middle of the race because he’s so far ahead, the Hare is so besotted with himself that he stops to take ‘selfies’, ‘tweets’ Twitter messages, posts on Facebook, watches YouTube and generally wastes time because he’s distracted;-by his love of himself! The Hare is the ultimate narcissicist. This leads to him losing the race with the Tortoise. The final celebration underlines the Tortoise’s bravery; ‘she may be slow, but good things come to those who wait’.
