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.
