Tortoise and Hairball are neighbors. Not the good kind of neighbors. Tortoise does everything slow. And Hairball never lets Tortoise forget it. The “Tortoise and the Hairball” is a quirky twist on Aesop’s “The Tortoise and the Hare”. While this 32-page, cleverly illustrated book is ideal for ages 6 to 8, younger and older readers will also be entertained.

Inspiration for The Tortoise and the Hairball
Like a lot of people I love Aesop’s Fables–The Tortoise and the Hare, The Lion and the Mouse, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, to name a few. I wish I could tell you some cool story for how I came up with “The Tortoise and the Hairball.” I was just musing a while back and thought, wouldn’t it be funny if the hare was a hairball?
Hey, I told you it wasn’t a cool story.
Fortunately my early ideas of what Hairball should look like never made it into the book. My sincerest hope is that I’ve created a fun, quick read that kids (and parents) will want to enjoy again and again.
