Summary

Uncle Remus, that genial old storyteller, knows how to spin these wonderful tales about the 'criteers' that the little 6 year old boy (and many of us adults!) love to listen to. Yet the 'Brer Rabbit and 'Brer Fox and the others sound a lot like the people all around us. They tell stories about personalities and faults and virtues in a way that is unique to Uncle Remus. As the shadows grow longer outside, draw up a rocking chair next to the little boy, settle back and listen to the wise old man tell these stories. These 17 stories were specially chosen from Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings and include The Wonderful Tar-Baby Story, Miss Cow falls a Victim to Mr. Rabbit; Mr. Fox and the Deceitful Frogs; Mr. Rabbit grossly deceives Mr. Fox and lots of others.

Sorry to say poor reader

Uncle Remus

Such a great collection of stories and a very capable reader! My kids love listening to these stories, and do listen to them more than once. We played them on a long (15 hour) car trip, and it was entertaining for everyone, not just the kids. The reader is excellent, and I plan on looking for more of his recordings. He gives each character a unique (but not annoying) voice, and really makes the stories come alive. Also, when not in character, he has a very pleasing narrative voice.
