Anansi book cover

Anansi is as clever as he is lazy and loves to prove just how clever he is by boasting and tricking the people of the village and the animals of the jungle. He also hates to work hard. So, he often tricks people and animals so he can rest under the shade of a nearby tree. Luckily Anansi is not always as clever as he likes to think he is. Sometimes everything backfires and he becomes the victim of his own tricks.
