Description

World-renowned painter Dr. David Harleyson and his nephew John D. are about to set off another adventure! This time they're headed down South to Sandy Creek, where Dr. David plans on capturing the famous trickster Br'er Rabbit on canvas--a portrait he's always dreamed of painting. Br'er Fox has "thoughtfully" agreed to help.
 
But getting Br'er Rabbit to sit for his portrait is easier said than done because he has to keep slipping away from Br'er Fox and Br'er Wolf, who also want to capture him--to barbecue! It will be a summer of adventure--and misadventure--for John D. as he meets all the favorite characters from Uncle Remus and retells their classic tales in funny letters home to his dad.
