The setup may sound familiar: a cocky hare challenges a determined tortoise to a race. The details here are a bit different, though -- the setting is a vividly rendered version of the American Southwest, and the spectators are animals you'd find there (Gila monster, bobcat, vulture, etc.). Additionally, master storyteller Jerry Pinkney spells out the moral in a satisfying, cumulative fashion, beginning with "slow" and working up to "slow and steady wins the race" just in time for the tortoise's (eventual) victory. If you like this interpretation of a well-known fable, check out Pinkney's equally lush and intricate retellings of The Lion & the Mouse and The Grasshopper & the Ants.

An absolutely gorgeous picture book that is nearly wordless. The illustrations speak for themselves and tell the well-known tale of the tortoise and the hare.
