One of the first books released after the film's release in Australia. This book is one in a set of three. The three stories printed in the American Little Golden Book were split up into three separate books for printing in Australia. Printed by Colourtone Pty. Ltd. Brer Fox and Bear make a "baby" out of tar and stick him on the side of the road to catch Brer Rabbit. Brer Rabbit says hello but the tar baby doesn't reply. He ends up hitting the tar baby and gets stuck. When Brer Fox decides how to kill him, Brer Rabbit pleads not to be flung into the briar patch, which is what ends up happening, letting Brer Rabbit free, since that's where he was born and raised.
