Brer Rabbit

The Great Tug-o-war

Book - 1998
Rate this:
Brer Rabbit is best known today as the fictional creation of the nineteenth-century storyteller, Joel Chandler Harris. But the zany rabbit actually originated far earlier as a character in African folklore. Author and poet John Agard has adapted an original African story that was never told by Harris -- and the result is offbeat humor with wonderfully funny illustrations by Korky Paul. Those cool guys, Rhino and Hippo, are always boasting about their muscles, each convinced that he's stronger than the other. It takes a brainy, bouncy Brer Rabbit to trick them into the greatest tug-o-war contest ever.
