Originally written down by Joel Chandler Harris, Uncle Remus tales were first published more than 100 years ago and serve as the largest collection of African-American folklore. In this four-book series, Julius Lester masterfully retains the flavor of the tales, while dropping the heavy dialect of the originals and adding a contemporary flair. Color illustrations throughout.
