Editorial Reviews

About the Author

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 love Uncle Remus, and I love the original writing. This book is so abridged that it totally loses the character of the stories. I wanted to give this book away, but didn't want to stick anyone else with it. My 4-year old likes it because it has big color pictures, and my husband likes it because he has trouble reading the original. For an abridged version that's easier to read, I highly recommend The Complete Tales by James Pinkney.

My mother was very disappointed with this book. She felt that the stories were poorly rewritten from the original Joel Chandler Harris version. But maybe her memory of the original stories is imperfect.

I bought this while in New Orleans to give to my granddaughters. I have been reading each story aloud to them. They love the stories and the illustrations.
I am so disappointed that the publisher did not correct the typesetting errors. I had to adjust what I was saying so that the improper syntax and typos would not be heard by my listeners. What a sad impact on a great book. Now I want to purchase another for my sister's children. I plan to include 10 or 20 one-dollar bills as finders rewards for them to identify the mistakes in the book. Hope that is enough. Basically making lemonade out of lemons. This book should be reprinted and offered as free replacement for current owners. Even Uncle Remus would have done that.

I remember as a child many, many years ago listening to and reading these tales of trickery and hoodwinking with a great sense of fondness.
I purchased this book for my own son and have enjoyed reliving these old-fashioned stories and re-acquainting myself with these clever, witty and crafty characters. This book has been adapted to a shortened version retold in a simplified english language that all will understand. The illustrations are large, bold and very colourful. This is a truely wonderful book of short stories and tales that will bring us many smiles in the years to come.

My children and I enjoyed the stories but the publisher did a really bad job editing. The book is full of spelling errors! I certainly wouldn't have purchased the book had I known how many spelling errors there were - at least 12, I would think!

I laughed so hard I couldn't believe it. Brer Rabbit is a character and you can't even be mad at his antics because even when Brer Turtle pulled the master trick of all tricks on him Brer Rabbit didn't even exchange words, he did what he'd told Brer Turtle he was going to do. (You have to read it to see what it was) Get this, your kids will love it and so will you.
