Roadsigns: A Harey Race with a Tortoise

Tortoise and Hare race along a road filled with traffic signs while the other animals cheer them on.


This adaptation of Aesop's familiar fable has very little conventional text; instead, readers peruse dozens of signs along the route of Tortoise's race with Hare... Readers will enjoy tracing the competitors' progress across the colorful pages. – The Horn Book


The signs are fun to read, and the bright acrylic-on-canvas illustrations are playful and appealing. Children can follow the whole route of the race on the endpapers... Roadsigns will provide reading practice, sign recognition, and good fun for both one-on-one sharing and individual reading. – School Library Journal


Younger readers will find both visual jokes and plenty of pictures... Open this engaging debut for the illustrator and there'll be "No Stopping. – Kirkus Reviews
