Who wants to marry a trickster?

Kweku Ananse, the trickster, is back in this third book of the African Fireside Classics series.

He is looking for a wife and it is no easy matter. He is at his worst! He lies, he cheats and behaves badly.

If you are the tiniest bit romantic, these stories are not for you. In fact, children start crying  for nothing, jealousy spreads around the world, etc. etc.

Now, if you have ever wondered what a lazy, greedy and selfish trickster wants most in a wife—it is not brains, not brawn or even beauty. 


According to Ananse, the ideal wife should have no mouth! No eating, no speaking! Ha! How does that work out for him?

About the Author

A. Sakyiama was born in Ghana, West Africa. She grew up hearing many of the stories that she now retells for all of us to enjoy.

She writes of the antics of wily folktale characters like Ananse, his son, Ntikuma and his clever wife, Aso. She tells stories of naughty and nice ghosts; scared but brave boys and girls; monsters that eat disobedient children; as well as fantastical tales about why things are the way they are.
A. Sakyiama currently lives in the USA with her family. She is also an avid gardener or more accurately, a fierce warrior who defends her territory against marauding gangs of deer, woodchucks, rabbits and crows.
