About this title


A retelling of the continuing adventures and misadventures of Brer Rabbit and his friends and enemies.

From School Library Journal:

K Up This, the second part of a two-part retelling of the African-American folk tales collected by Joel Chandler Harris in the late 19th Century, includes 37 more folktales that did not appear in the earlier volume, The Tales of Uncle Remus: the Adventures of Brer Rabbit (Dial, 1987). As with the first volume, the retellings are striking in their faithfulness to the spirit of the originals but without their drawbacks of heavy dialect and stereotypical narrator. These are charming, spirited stories. Here, Lester has done what all storytellers aim to do: he has told his stories faithfully while at the same time making them uniquely his own. Pinkney's illustrations are mostly black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings with a few full-color double-page spreads which emphasize the colors of nature. While not as nimble as the A. B. Frost originals, they are still a strong match for Lester's retellings. An outstanding choice for public and school libraries as well as for storytellers. Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Pub .
