Harry in a Hurry is Timothy Knapman and Gemma Merino’s unique twist on the well-loved Aseop’s Fable, The Tortoise and the Hare. Harry the Hare is always in a hurry – he’s not even sure why! He eats fast and talks fast – and if he’s riding on his speedy scooter then you’d better watch out! But when Harry accidentally hurries his way into the local pond, and Tom the Tortoise fishes him out, Harry is forced to take a leaf out of Tom’s book and slow right down. In doing so he not only finds a new friend, but enjoys a whole new world of experiences.
