Brer Rabbit is loose in Younge House!

Now Brer Rabbit was skipping down the road one day heading for his home in the briar patch when he…jumped through the door of Younge House!

We have begun reading the tales of this trickster character and are enjoying his many mischievous adventures.   Did you know that these classic American folktales originated in Africa? They were brought over during the time of slavery and have been passed down by storytellers ever since. We have our favorites (which you will soon see us illustrating for our Brer Rabbit comics) – here are a few sites so you can find one too:

Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby and More

The Wren’s Nest offers audio of different Storytellers telling the tales
