Meet the Author

Don Daily (1940-2002) illustrated many classic children's books and anthologies for Courage Books. He also created posters for many films, including The Lone Ranger, The Great Santini, and Roots. Daily's work has appeared in such magazines as Reader's Digest, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping. Joel Chandler Harris (1848-1908) collected the folktales of Southern African Americans and retold them as classic stories of Uncle Remus, a fictitious old slave who spun stories to a boy from “the big house of a plantation.” He wrote five books featuring Uncle Remus and his stories of Brer Rabbit and friends. The first, Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings, was published in 1880.

I think every child should be familiar with the wonderful old stories like Brer Rabbit so I purchased this book as gifts for several friends as well as reading it myself. The illustrations are captivating and the stories short so you won't lose anyone's attention even if you are the one reading it out loud.
