Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Disckind
The author, a Southern folklorist, recounts this story first told to him by Simon Brown, a former slave. In a time of scarcity, the greedy and ferocious Brer Tiger keeps all the starving animals away from the one remaining source of food and water. But Brer Rabbit enlists his friends in teaching this mean-spirited creature a lesson in sharing. This folktale can be understood and enjoyed by reading the engaging story and viewing its illustrations, full of energy and spirit. Or on another level, it can provide the basis for a valuable discussion on fairness, equality, retribution (or justice, depending on the reader's point of view), and slavery.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4In the 1970s, Faulkner, an African American minister and folklorist, published The Days When the Animals Talked, a collection of African American folktales (now published by Africa World, 1993). Many of these stories are not to be found elsewhere, including the one told here. On the surface, it is a lively tale of how Brer Rabbit organized the other animals into tricking Brer Tiger into giving them food and water during a time of famine. Under the surface, it is intended as a comfort tale to show those in bondage how to triumph over the many repressions of slavery. The writing is engaging and amusing, and lends itself naturally to storytelling and reading aloud. Done with egg tempera, the illustrations strongly feature the earth tones of brown, black, greens, and golds. They sit in an attractive and well-laid-out format. They resemble primitive woodcuts but are filled with movement and vitality. Wilson's Brer Rabbit is a sly, rakish critter, the sort of rabbit you wouldn't want to buy a used car from, but who would charm you into it anyway. The end result is a lively first purchase for most collections, sure to be enjoyed by groups and by individual children poring and chuckling over the pages.Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, GA
