Product Description

All the young men had gathered in the village courtyard to hear the Chief's pronouncement: Whoever guesses his daughter's name will have her hand in marriage, inherit half his riches, and become the next Chief. No one outside the palace had ever heard the royal daughter's name, but in a stroke of luck Ananse discovers what it is. "Chief Ananse," the spider says gleefully to himself. He likes the way that sounds. Lizard, however, may have plans of his own. But can Lizard out-trick a trickster as tricky as Ananse? Pat Cummings's lively retelling and vibrantly colored illustrations capture all the mischief and humor of Ananse, one of the most popular characters of West African lore.
