Anansi - Trickier Than Ever
Traditional African Tales retold by Lynne Garner
If you've already read Lynne's first collection of Anansi stories (Anansi - The Trickster Spider) you already know he is as clever as he is lazy. Anansi loves to prove just how clever he is by boasting and tricking those around him. However sometimes his tricks backfire.
Adults will love reading these tales to younger children, whilst older children will delight in discovering Anansi for themselves. Read about Anansi in the following eight tales:
- How Anansi missed four parties in one night
- Anansi invites Turtle to tea
- How Anansi, Fly and Ant won the sun
- Anansi and the talking melon
- Anansi and the moss covered rock
- Why Anansi has thin, long legs
- Anansi and the field of corn
- Anansi and the tug of war
