Aesop's Fable

According to Wikipedia, March 26th, 1484 was the day that William Caxton first published Aesop's Fables translated into English. Aesop's best known fable could be The Tortoise and The Hare.
Madame Alexander produced a pretty 8" doll accompanied by a plush hare and tortoise.

Fran Parrigan-Meehan made a tortoise and hare art doll pair in 2007. In a more recent post on her blog, she has listed a bunch of the upcoming doll conference events, many of which she is involved with. I love her painted doll faces.
