Editorial Reviews

K Up-- As in The Tales of Uncle Remus: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (1987) and More Tales of Uncle Remus: Further Adventures of Brer Rabbit, His Friends, Enemies, and Others (1988 , both Dial), Lester has retold ``Uncle Remus''tales, although fewer will be familiar than in the previous books. Mostly, the antics of other animals are featured instead of those of the perennial hero, Brer Rabbit. But they're still a lively crowd, constantly trying to outsmart, outtrick, and outfox one another with varying degrees of success. Lester's excellent retellings once again use a forceful and audacious Uncle Remus as their narrator. The prose is spirited and witty with nimble and original turns of phrases that are highly entertaining, making the text a good read-aloud choice. Pinkney's watercolors, full-page spreads rich in the use of earth tones and other colors of nature, have a strong folk verve to them. --Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Public Library
