Publisher's Summary

It seems animals are like people in many ways--they just can’t get along with one another. And Brer Rabbit has the most trouble of all. Maybe it’s his mischievous ways, or maybe it’s because adventures always come looking for him. There was the frightening day that Brer Rabbit found himself attached to a baby made of sticky tar. Brer Fox would have had a tasty barbecue that evening if Brer Rabbit hadn’t been such a quick thinker. Then there was the time Mr. Man finally caught Brer Rabbit in the garden. That was almost the end of a certain long-eared animal. Award-winning author Julius Lester skillfully captures the rhythm and melodic language of these timeless stories first told by slaves. With an accessible combination of standard and black English, he preserves the traditional story lines and wit, yet adds touches of modern humor, breathing life into spunky Brer Rabbit and each of his colorful friends and foes.

    "Not the original versions of the stories."

    These are paraphrased and heavily edited versions with modern references of the classic Uncle Remus stories. I would only recommend these if you want to have a introduction, but understand they talk about things such as TVs, the welfare office, tennis shoes and other items that didn't exist from the 1800s when these folk stories were originally collected.

    That said the narration was awesome and took a good pacing for these types of stories. That made them enjoyable to listen to while on a drive or at work.
