KIRKUS REVIEW

I have oddly mixed feelings about this book. Something in me objects to any sort of revision of these classic tales. But my common sense tells me that many more children will enjoy them, with decreased use of difficult dialect, with omission of digressions and of adults on the side, and with selection of the best tales. The familiar A. B. Frost stories are redrawn for reproduction purposes by Victor Dowling. Here's a chance to try Brer Rabbit and his friends on Yanken youngsters.
