Once upon a time there was a tortoise, a hare, and a snail. The hare was always boasting about how fast he was, and the others were growing tired of his bragging. So one fine day, the tortoise challenged him to a race.

He told the hare, "Well, you might thinkyou're so fast, but I can beat you in a race!". Seeing the snail and the tortoise sitting beside each other, this question popped up in my head. I immediately asked her, “If there is a race between the snail and the tortoise, who will win?” “Well if the snail rests in between, and the tortoise keeps at it, the tortoise will win,” she said at first.

The tortoise tried this and easily climbed to the top of the tree. Then he realized how futile his effort was. He had collected all the wisdom in the world, yet the snail had proven wiser than him. He threw the gourd unto the ground where it broke into several pieces allowing all the wisdom in it.

Stephen Michael King's new picture book is a nice story about two friends, snail and turtle. They love to do things together but recognise and accept each others' individuality. A lovely story about friendships and acknowledging our similarities and differences.

The Hare now ran his swiftest, but he could not overtake the Tortoise in time. The race is not always to the swift. The tortoise is faster than the snail!. But, to nail the snail means, to kill it; So, sail along with your works and always seek for peace.

Seek for the truth, With the muse of righteous morals. Life. Oh life!. Facing the odds as well; Problems, Struggling along the line, To fail at times. Mail, tail, bail.
