Overview

Brer Rabbit is one of the craftiest characters you will ever meet. Locked in an eternal game of catch-me-if-you-can with Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit thinks up the most outrageous tricks to outsmart him time and time again. And when he's not scheming against hungry Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit is busy trying to outwit Brer Weasel, Brer Terrapin, Brer Bear, and all of his other friends just for the fun of it.

African-American storyteller Karima Amin's lively retelling of ten classic Brer Rabbit tales is based on the stories that she heard as a child. "I was a little girl when I first met Brer Rabbit," she recalls. "My mother brought him into our house and into my life. Many years later, I learned that Brer Rabbit was a hero/trickster character created by my foreparents, enslaved Africans."

Amin uses her storyteller's art to recreate the oral tradition that kept these powerful stories alive on the plantations of the Old South. Eric Copeland's illustrations match the humor and mischief of the text, while photographs invite readers to explore the stories' settings, their African roots, and the life of their collector, Joel Chandler Harris.

Great fun to read aloud, these are stories to be shared and treasured by all.

A retelling of the classic African American tales about Brer Rabbit and his friends and enemies, animals who are constantly on the prowl to fool each other.
