THE TALES OF UNCLE REMUS The Adventures of Brer Rabbit

by | Read by Julius Lester

Children Ages 8+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

Like fairy tales and fables, THE TALES OF UNCLE REMUS are classic stories retold periodically to introduce them to a new generation. Julius Lester's version does a wonderful job of recreating the characters we know and love--Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, Brer Wolf, Brer Bear, Mr. Man, etc.--while adding humor and contemporary commentary to the traditional stories, such as "Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby." Lester captures the slow rhythm of rural Southern life--lazy hot days and cool, lively evenings--as the animals strive to coexist. Lester's characterizations, with just the right combination of Southern dialect and Black English, bring the quick-witted Brer Rabbit, and his friends and foes, to life in these timeless stories.
