The Greatest Race
by A. Lawati
A colony of Afghan tortoises imported as pets is forced to become refugees in Yosemite National Park when their container falls from a lorry. Anxious to fit in, they accept a challenge to a rematch of the most famous Race, from the local cottontail rabbits. Doing so they make unexpected alliances and cement their place in the community such that the race has no loser, only winners.
