I can still remember the pleasure I got from my Dad reading me the "Uncle Remus" stories when I was very young. By the time I was able to read them myself I wasn't so fond of them. They were written in the Gullah dialect of the Old South which was hard for an eight-year-old to decipher. The five stories in this book are nicely adapted to more modern English, while still keeping the flavor of the original tales, and I loved getting reacquainted with Brer Rabbit and his cohorts. The artwork by Barry Mosher adds tremendously to the whole. I should think the kids of today would enjoy them just as much as we did. They are certainly better than Saturday morning cartoons.
