Summary
Anansi and his wife outsmart the Sky God and win back the beloved folktales of their people. Peppered with Verna Aardema's trademark ideophones--words that mimic actual sounds--this book makes an ideal read-aloud. Brilliantly realized characters and West African flavor come together in Desimini's extraordinary collage illustrations. Includes a glossary of West African terms and pronunciations. Full color
