Esteemed author Virginia Hamilton retells the classic trickster tale of Bruh Rabbit and the Tar Baby in her own distinctive, playful vernacular with paintings by acclaimed artist James Ransome.
Bruh Rabbit may indeed have met his match when he comes across a tar baby in the middle of the road. The baby’s deaf, dumb and blind attitude infuriates the plucky trickster, just as Wolf planned! When Bruh Rabbit gets entangled in the tar baby’s sticky embrace, has he finally been foiled by his long-time enemy? Certainly not, if Wolf falls for Bruh Rabbit’s clever reverse-psychology and flings the wily rabbit into the briar patch! Spun in Virginia Hamilton’s unique vernacular, this will be a delight to those familiar with Bruh Rabbit’s games, and a unforgettable introduction for newcomers!
