Anansi the Spider – West African folklore stories by Story Cove
Anansi is half spider, half man – the original spiderman you could say!
His stories of cunning trickery, laziness, and sometimes cleverness go way back.
His many exploits derive from parts of West Africa, such as Ghana. And they have spread throughout most of the Caribbean islands – including having much popularity in Jamaica.
The Story Cove have a series of these colourful Anansi exploits. The stories are told by Bobby and Sherry Norfolk. And nicely illustrated by Baird Hoffmire.
I myself, can proudly claim to own all of these Anansi books. I use them at some of my storytelling events! The children thoroughly enjoy them!
