    1. Charming adaptation of the tortoise and the hare fable with little Nantucket children competing to see who can run fastest to bring the news of the safe return of a ship.

    2. Here's a nice fresh take on that whole "Tortoise and the Hare" story that's been thrown around forever. Set historically at the dawn of our nation, we have two children who are both dying for the honor or being able to take the news of a ship coming in to harbor. Of course Obadiah feels that a GIRL shouldn't be able to do something so important as all that. So yay, girl power in the 1600s! Woo hoo! Cute story with beautiful illustrations and a ton of historical detail that is fun to read. To me [...]

    3. Little Rachel, the youngest sibling in the Starbuck family, proves to Big Brother Obadiah that girls are every bit as good as boys when she has the opportunity to run tell the waiting family of a ship at sea that the ship has come back to port safely with all hands aboard.

    4. With a name like Obadiah it's very certain the story will be about Quakers. A younger sister races her brother in tortoise and the hare like manner.
