“Allow me to introduce myself.”But he needed no introduction. “Anansi the spider!” said Anansi the boy. “The tales were true!””Traditional tales are always true,” the spider answered, laughing.

“Nothing lasts so long as truth, nor travels quite so far.”Award-winning author of Ghana Must Go, Taiye Selasi, reimagines the story of Anansi, the much-loved trickster, for a new generation. Kweku has grown up hearing stories about the mischievous spider Anansi. He is given the nickname Anansi by his father because of his similarly cheeky ways.

On a holiday to visit his beloved Grandma in Ghana, Anansi the spider and Anansi the boy meet, and discover a magical pot that can be filled with whatever they want. Anansi fills it again and again with his favourite red-red stew, and eats so much that he feels sick. Will he learn to share this wonderful gift? This charming retelling of a West African story teaches readers about the dangers of greed, and the importance of being kind.

Tinuke Fagborun’s colourful illustrations bring the magic and wonder of the tale to life.
