A beautifully illustrated African folk tale
"A story a story, let it come, let it go." This African folk tale is one of my daughters favorite books. It tells how clever little Ananse overcomes several obstacles in order to win all the stories of the sky god and bring them down to earth. It shows how "little people" can use ingenuity to outsmart formidable opponents.

York City. Little boys would sometimes shout with delight SPIDER MAN! when I picked it up and everyone would
quickly become absorbed by the story. It never failed, even with older children. The large, colorful illustrations
and quickly moving action hold children's attention. It is equally good for family reading and for storytelling to
large groups. Get it! It's a keeper!
