Ananse and the Lizard

Written and illustrated by Pat Cummings

Henry Holt and Co.


Ananse is one of the most popular, mischevious folktale characters ever recorded, but can a trickster as tricky as Ananse ever be tricked? \n I searched through library collections, traveled over 5,000 miles to West Africa, listened to storytellers in Ghana and Nigeria and finally found a colorful and satisfying tale that turns the tables on the wily spider.
