Anansi is lazy and he likes to play tricks! This time, turtle outsmarts Anansi. Anansi does all of the work while turtle gets tired. The kids in my class ask to listen to this book and the other Anansi tales, retold by Eric Kimmel, over and over again. This one takes a little bit more thinking to figure out what the tricks are.

This is a fantastic story. I own a ridiculous number of books, but this book was so wonderful I had to own it. My 8-year old thought it was hilarious.

Very Good Story! April 20 2013
By Matt Causey - Published on Amazon.com
Anansi the spider is a favorite character of West african folktales. He is always trying to trick his friend turtle, but sometimes turtle tricks him instead!! In this story, Anansi tries to trick turtle into catching fish for him, but turtle is on to him and tricks Anansi instead!

I have the CD accompanyment, and the storytelling is very good, each character has a different voice, and there is a good moral at the end!! This story tells how spiders learned to spin webs!
The trickster gets tricked! May 1 2010
By Ulyyf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anansi, lazy spider, plans to trick Turtle out of his fish.

Unfortunately, everybody knows what sort of a person Anansi is, and Turtle tricks him first. Well, truth be told, it's pretty funny to see how Anansi manages to outwit himself. Sure, Turtle facilitates it, but this is a prime example of how being lazy doesn't work if you don't also think. (And if you want to go deeper, the end of the story shows how if you constantly trick people, nobody believes you when you're the wronged party.)

Really funny book, and there's probably a moral in there somewhere.
