I loved this book and although I've seen portions of the movie here in the states I don't think I've ever seen the whole thing and last I heard never will. Its sad if you ask me because it depends on what you choose to focus on and if you focus on the fact it places slavery in a good light which I've heard some say it does then yeah that's not good. But if you decide

Overview

I loved this book and although I've seen portions of the movie here in the states I don't think I've ever seen the whole thing and last I heard never will. Its sad if you ask me because it depends on what you choose to focus on and if you focus on the fact it places slavery in a good light which I've heard some say it does then yeah that's not good. But if you decide to focus on the relationship that children who happen to be white have with Uncle Remus who happens to be black (sort of a Grandfather figure is what I got) then its a good movie. Lets focus on the book shall we, if you've ever heard of Bre'r Rabbit and the Tar Baby then that's just one of the stories in this book. According to the Introduction this is a collection of Stories passed down by Negroes in the South and to preserve the original simplicity its written in dialect or rather its written the way the ones telling the stories tend to pronounce words, the author comments about the fact it may not actually qualify as a dialect. Reading in dialect can sometimes be a bit confusing but if done well it adds to the story. Uncle Remus is definitely a fun read one I highly recommend if you've heard any of the Bre'r Animal tells that Disney has done and enjoyed them

Infinitykit is a deep black kit with shocking purple eyes. She is shy and wary, not wanting to trust the cats around her, but she is very kind and loyal. She is four moons old and already knows how to hunt and survive, but she is lonely. Her biggest dream is to become a leaper and gain the name InfinitStar, but she knows it will never happen. A moon after she was born, her family was killed by a fire. She and her sister escaped and her sister taught the kit how to survive before dying by a falling tree.
