Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit

Joel Chandler Harris

Book Overview: 

Uncle Remus' stories feature a trickster hero called Br'er Rabbit ("Brother" Rabbit), who uses his wits to slide out of trouble and gain the advantage over the slower witted other animals, many of whom are trying to eat him. Br'er Rabbit stories were mostly collected directly from the afro-american oral story-telling tradition and are said to be a direct interpretation of Yoruba tales of Hare. This book contains 11 unique stories and was the last one published before the author's death.

“Wid dat, Brer Rabbit bow’d, he did, an’ went back down de road like de dogs wuz atter ’im.”

“But what happened then?” the little boy asked. “Nothin’ ’t all,” replied Uncle Remus, taking up the chuckle where he had left off. “De creeturs aint had no dance, an’ when dey went ter Miss Meadows’, she put her head out de winder, an’ say ef dey don’t go off fum dar she’ll have de law on um!”

Wiki source - Br'er Rabbit is a central figure in the Uncle Remus stories of the Southern United States. He is a trickster character who succeeds through his wits rather than through strength, tweaking authority figures and bending social mores as he sees fit. The origin of Br'er Rab...more

it was really hard to read because it was like des is te best buuk evr translation=this is the best book ever.

Clever rabbit, I can't say as much for the others.

Бувають речі, які чітко асоціюються з якимись подіями, з місцями, обставинами, із запахами, звуками чи навіть вітром... Такими для мене (та й для сина та чоловіка, впевнена) є Братик Лис і Братик Кролик. Оці самі, про яких розповідає дядечко Римус у серії своїх книг, але тільки з мультика. Тому й...more

Absolutely loved it and enjoyed it. Some really fun morals to share with kids. Should have read it to Patrick.

I think this reminds me of the stories my grandfather used to tell me. The book is quite politically incorrect for these days and times, but not considered so in those days. As far as I am concerned as a voice in the wilderness, this is a good book. Some of us black and white grew up with these p...more

1. Personal: When I picked this book to read, I didn't realize that it was so old. You could definitely tell that it was a classic read, but I felt that it was sort of dry throughout most of it. I did love the image that it presented and the small stories were cute and had a great moral purpose f...more

This is the first children's book (or any book) that I have read where the main character is a prankster like I have only seen in classic cartoons. Could Brer Rabbit have been their inspiration?
Slaves were forbidden to read or write so it makes sense that the text is thick Ebonics. I loved the il...more
