The stories of Uncle Remus are a collection of folk tales on animals, songs, and oral folklore, that, for many of them, like Aesop's or La Fontaine's fables, have a didactic purpose. Uncle Remus is the title character of these African-American folk tales, that have here been put together by Joel Chandler Harris.
