Review:
“Uncle Remus” would have been honored if he knew these critters might be helping to tell his stories! The three most common Brer characters (Rabbit, Fox, and Bear) are similarly designed, each with the back-waist opening that allows the puppeteer to simultaneously manipulate both the arms and mouth (although the mouth cavity is a bit snug). All are attired in “people clothes” to complement the personification of these animals in popular trickster stories, and each creature has donned at least one special garment—a velveteen jacket for Rabbit. These puppets can encourage young learners to explore the accompanying stories-and to investigate additional stories found in area libraries and bookstores.

Each is sold separately.
