A quirky reworking of the traditional Anansi stories from west Africa by Andrew Fusek Peters. Nyame the sky god has a special treasure – in a big, brass chest are all the stories ever told. Anansi, the cleverest of spiders, sees that down on Earth the people are bored. Unfortunately, she can’t spin a tale, but she can spin a web. So she makes a ladder up into the sky, determined to bring back the stories, whatever it takes. This humourous version of the stories of Anansi by Andrew Fusek Peters has fun black-and-white illustrations by Sara Ugolotti and is perfect for children who are developing as readers.
