by | Read by Julius Lester

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

Julius Lester doesn't narrate these stories of Brer Rabbit so much as tell them with the same wit and style he used when rewriting them for his famous collections. When Lester's frogs speak, they sound like frogs, and the frequent authorial intrusions that point out the stories' inconsistencies are pitch-perfect. Even the flaws in the recording--the occasional sound of a page turning and hesitations at the wrong moment--add to the feeling that the listener is sitting with Lester, smiling and laughing and groaning at Brer Rabbit's tricks and deceptions. This recording is a classic and will be best shared by young and old together. A.F. 2003 ALA Notable Recording (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
