About the Author

Don Daily (1940-2002) illustrated many classic childrens books and anthologies for Courage Books. He also created posters for many films, including The Lone Ranger, The Great Santini, and Roots. Dailys work has appeared in such magazines as Reader's Digest, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping. Joel Chandler Harris (1848-1908) collected the folktales of Southern African Americans and retold them as classic stories of Uncle Remus, a fictitious old slave who spun stories to a boy from “the big house of a plantation.” He wrote five books featuring Uncle Remus and his stories of Brer Rabbit and friends. The first, Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings, was published in 1880.

My mother read this to me in the 50's. I know that my mother also had this book read to her. What happens to the rabbit was sad and cruel to me. I believe that I started to care and love lost, abused and homeless animals. We read it several times growing up and it always made me feel bad for the rabbit and the jokes played on him. I also learned that when people make fun of you or laugh at your expense, it isn't nice. I have always felt that way because of this book.I will never forget it.
