In this Choctaw tale, distinguished from that Aesop one about individual competition, nasty Rabbit gets his comeuppance because everyone else works together to make it happen. Even a cheering squad of Little Bitty Turtles.

Available in hardcover.  Tim Tingle (Choctaw), When Turtle Grew Feathers. 2007, color illustrations by Stacey Schuett.

Remember that time when Turtle outraced Rabbit? Well, it wasn’t because (as you probably already know) Turtle was faster. It was because it wasn’t really Turtle whom Rabbit was racing, but Turkey (who was just trying on Turtle’s shell, newly-mended by a colony of ants). In this Choctaw tale, distinguished from that Aesop one about individual competition, nasty Rabbit gets his comeuppance because everyone else works together to make it happen. Even a cheering squad of Little Bitty Turtles.

Also available in CD format.
