Riassunto: Five of the best Brer Rabbit tales--carefully adapted from the original Uncle Remus stories published in the late 1800s--are beautifully illustrated in this volume--"certainly the best of all the editions now in print" ("School Library Journal"). Full color.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3 The folktales collected by Harris from former slaves at the turn-of-the-century constitute a valuable contribution to African-American folklore. However, their usefulness has been weakened by problems with the heavy dialect with which they were written and with the narrator, Uncle Remus. Margaret Wise Brown's Brer Rabbit: Stories from Uncle Remus (Harper, 1941; o.p.) and Ennis Rees' Brer Rabbit and His Tricks (1967; o.p.) and More of Brer Rabbit's Tricks (1968; o.p., both Scott), all of which eliminated Uncle Remus, are excellent versions, but all, unfortunately, are out-of-print. This book steps in to fill the void left by those books. It is a retelling of six stories found in Chase's The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus (Houghton, 1955). These retellings are as spirited as the originals but without their drawbacks. They are written in standard English, which eliminates the pain of trying to figure out what all these "Bimebys" mean. Also, Uncle Remus is nowhere in sight to detract from the lively carryings on of Brer Rabbit and friends. Moser's illustrations, full-page portraits of the characters and their antics, are in pen-and-ink and watercolor. They match the text in humor and vigor, all the while comparing favorably with the 1896 A. B. Frost drawings for the original edition. This picture book retelling should serve as a good introduction for younger children to this important piece of American folk culture. Certainly it's the best of all the editions now in print, and one that should be treasured. Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Public Library
