Uncle Remus Comes to Life
By Jane Runyon

1     Have you ever heard the story of "Br'er Rabbit and the Tar Baby"? Br'er Rabbit was a rabbit with an attitude. He thought very highly of himself and his abilities. He figured he could outsmart just about everyone. He took great delight in tricking Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear. They were bigger than he was, but he knew that he was smarter.
2     One day Br'er Rabbit was walking down a country lane when he saw someone sitting on top of a fence. He said hello and went on down the road. When he got a few steps on, he stopped. He thought it was awfully rude that the person on the fence didn't say hello back. He turned back and told the person just what he thought of the rude behavior. When he still got no response, he got very angry. He started hitting the person. After a few blows, he realized that it wasn't a person at all. It was a doll made of black, very sticky tar. It was too late. He was stuck to the tar baby.
3     Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear had been watching from a short distance away. They had put the tar baby on the fence to catch Br'er Rabbit. They rolled on the ground in laughter watching Br'er Rabbit get more and more stuck in the tar. When Br'er Rabbit could no longer move, Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear came forward to claim their prize. They told Br'er Rabbit about all of the terrible things they were going to do to him.
