Sure as Sunrise:
Bruh Rabbit and His Walkin' Talkin' Friends
by Alice McGill

Your mama knows them. Your papa knows them. Your granny and grampy knows them. Great-great Grandpa Horace knows them. Finally you get to meet them!

Bruh Rabbit and his walkin' talkin' friends come alive again in these stories about tricks and briar patches and life. Bruh Rabbit teaches his friends lessons that they would probably just as soon not learn. And, along the way, he learns a valuable lesson, too!

Modeled after slave stories that were retold in writing by Joel Chandler Harris in Legends of the Old Plantation, 1881, this new version still has great dialect, but is more reader-friendly. They are still just as entertaining as ever and beg to be read over and over again! Your grandparents will be delighted if you tell them a tale of Bruh Rabbit, but don't be surprised when you get to hear a story or two from them, too!
