I love Uncle Remus, and I love the original writing. This book is so abridged that it totally loses the character of the stories. I wanted to give this book away, but didn't want to stick anyone else with it. My 4-year old likes it because it has big color pictures, and my husband likes it because he has trouble reading the original. For an abridged version that's easier to read, I highly recommend The Complete Tales by James Pinkney.
My mother was very disappointed with this book. She felt that the stories were poorly rewritten from the original Joel Chandler Harris version. But maybe her memory of the original stories is imperfect.
I was so surprised when I received this book to find that it was NOT THE ORIGINAL STORIES I READ AS A CHILD!! Returned it immediately!
