The Hare and the Tortoise by Samuel Howitt
Who will win the race?
"I have never yet been beaten," said the Hare, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me." The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge."
"That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you all the way.""Keep your boasting till you've beaten," answered the Tortoise...
..."Shall we race?"
All Glover and Smith designs are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and completely food safe. Because we use solid metal the surface of your Tortoise bowl and Hare spoon will never flake or rust, just wash with warm soapy water. All our designs are made exclusively by us in Wiltshire.
