Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit

Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.4 stars; 132 reviews)

Uncle Remus' stories feature a trickster hero called Br'er Rabbit ("Brother" Rabbit), who uses his wits to slide out of trouble and gain the advantage over the slower witted other animals, many of whom are trying to eat him. Br'er Rabbit stories were mostly collected directly from the afro-american oral story-telling tradition and are said to be a direct interpretation of Yoruba tales of Hare. This book contains 11 unique stories and was the last one published before the author's death. (Introduction by Phil Chenevert) (0 hr 46 min)

Excellent Reading

(5 stars)

Having read this to my children I know how difficult this is! This reader must have invested much time and work as his reading is superb. So grateful for his talent as it made listening such a joy.

Bedtime Stories of My childhood

(5 stars)

The reader has a wonderful voice! He brings Uncle Remus and all the characters to life. It's a little bit of Southern history as well as a good story.

Great Accent

(5 stars)

The accent this one is read with seems to fit very well. Many chuckles were had when it was a rainin' outsaad.

Its Raycyst

(4.5 stars)

These stories recapitulate ethnic stereotypes that allow whites to maintain an air of supercillious superiority. We must burn this book along with the writtings of Lincoln, Douglass and MLK, all of which give license for whites to believe there can be peace and ease with BIPOCs. Whites must eternally feel guilty for being white. BIPOCs must eternally feel oppressed. It is the foundation of society
