Tops & Bottoms


In this funny Caldecott Honorwinning fairy-tale retelling by Janet Stevens, wily Hare solves his family’s problems by tricking rich and lazy Bear into giving up half his crops.

Once a upon a time, there was a lazy Bear and a clever Hare. Bear had lots of money and lots of land but all he wanted to do was sleep. Hare had nothing but hungry children, so he came up with a plan to convince Bear to split his land down the middle—tops and bottoms. Hare can work all day and Bear can sleep.

It’s the perfect solution! Or is it?
