Summary

A collection of folk tales mostly centered around Anansi. In West African lore Anansi is known as a trickster god, and is often depicted as either a spider, a human or a combination of both. Thus many of the stories are attempts by Anansi to trick others for his own gain. Other stories are about why certain animals act in certain ways. (Summary by Lizzie Driver)
