This is an African tale about how stories came to be. Long ago there were no stories for children to hear, because all the stories belonged to the Sky god. However, Ananse, the Spider man spins a web up to the Sky god and offers to pay for the stories so that he can bring them back to Earth.

This book tells of how Ananse paid the price. I love the color scheme! Read more >>
