There once was a hare who loved to brag about his speed. The hare also loved to tease other animals, until one day, when the slowest animal in the forest challenged him to a race. Who won? Find out in The Tortoise and the Hare, the latest episode of YourClassical Storytime, featuring music by Alexander Borodin and original illustrations by Nancy Carlson.

(See more of Carlson's illustrations in the gallery.)
