dc.description.abstractForty large-format pages present five story complexes involving respectively Brer Wolf, Brer Fox, Frer Terrapin, Brer Fox again, and Brer Bear. The volume closes with the song Hominy Grove. The wolf story might be titled How to scald a wolf in a locked chest. The first fox story is about playing dead in the road. The trick works for Brer Rabbit but not for Brer Fox. The third story pits terrapin against rabbit. Five look-alike members of Brer Terrapin's family take places at each of the five mileposts and appear when Brer Rabbit approaches. The second Brer Fox cycle has Brer Rabbit riding him like a horse -- and not getting off but rather spurring him on near Miss Meadow's. Brer Rabbit's jump closes this story after his successful riding of Brer Fox as though he were the rabbit family's riding horse (32-33). The last story has Brer Rabbit and Brer Terrapin luring Brer Bear, Bear Wolf, and Bear Fox into the Mill Pond to net the moon. Each story cycle has three or four full-page illustrations. Some are portraits of chief actors. Each story has a colored two-page spread of a key moment in the story. Among the better illustrations are: Brer Fox Meets Mr. Man (14-15) and Brer Rabbit in the Agony of Defeat (25). Maybe best of all is The Rabbit Family's Riding Horse (30-31).
