Richly detailed and realistic illustrations bring this rarely published, humorous Brothers Grimm masterpiece to life

When a hare insults a humble hedgehog one morning in the field, they challenge each other to a race. The hare is sure he will win the race and get the gold coin. But the hedgehog has a secret plan up his sleeve that will demonstrate how brain power can beat brawn any day of the week. With masterful illustrations by Jonas Lauströer, this little-published gem from the Brothers Grimm leaps off the page, and will delight fairy tale fans of all ages.

Praise For Hare & the Hedgehog

"I’d also recommend The Hare & the Hedgehog . . . . Lauströer . . . brings readers sweeping spreads, filled with energy and movement. There’s a lot of humor here, too . . . I hope Lauströer has more picture books in his future." —Julie Danielson, Kirkus Reviews
