Two Brer Rabbit Story Collections


More of Brer Rabbit's Tricks by Ennis Rees and Illustrated by Edward Gorey.

It's a funny book. Almost every Brer Rabbit story collection seems to have a different kind of illustration of Brer Rabbit. This book has the best illustrations of Brer Rabbit because he looks so deceptively helpless. I love Brer Rabbit because he has such good tricks.


Giant Treasury of Brer Rabbit. Retold from the stories of Joel Chandler Harris and Illustrated by Harry Rountree and Rene Bull.

I would give it a hundred, if there were 100 stars. It's a really good book. It's really funny. The picture on the cover shows one of the pictures in the time when Brer Rabbit tricked Brer Cow and got her horns stuck in a tree so they could milk her. But, then the next day, Brer Cow chased Brer Rabbit for the rest of his life. I think he still thinks the trick was worth it, because they got a couple of buckets full of milk.

I really like his trickiness. This is my favorite Brer Rabbit book because it has lots of cool stories.
