Summary Introduce young readers to the West African tale of Anansi the spider. In this version of the story, Anansi ties a bit of web to each leg and leaves the other end with many friends who are cooking delicious food. When the food is ready, they will tug on the thread so that Anansi can eat the meal. To Anansi's surprise, all the food is ready at once, causing each of Anansi's legs to be pulled in all different directions! Featuring beautiful, vibrant illustrations and easy-to-read font, this book allows children to have fun while reading this folktale that explains why spiders have such long, thin legs.
