Publisher's Summary

This bonus story is available by download only and is not included in the physical or downloadable version of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales.

The spider plays a dramatic role in many African stories. He is often exceptionally resourceful - as is evident in this Nigerian folktale. In the stories of the Ashanti he is known as Kwaku Anansi.

Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales is an audiobook benefiting children orphaned and impacted by HIV/AIDS in South Africa, featuring Gillian Anderson, Benjamin Bratt, LeVar Burton, Ricardo Chavira, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, Whoopi Goldberg, Sean Hayes, Hugh Jackman, Samuel L. Jackson, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Debra Messing, Helen Mirren, Parminder Nagra, Sophie Okonedo, CCH Pounder, Alan Rickman, Jurnee Smollett, Charlize Theron, Blair Underwood, Forest Whitaker, and Alfre Woodard, with a special message from Archbishop Desmond Tutu and original music by South African legends by Johnny Clegg and Vusi Mahlasela, directed by Alfre Woodard. The audiobook was a truly international affair, recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, London, and Johannesburg. The stories were chosen by the Nobel Laureate himself, from every region of Africa.

Listen to the full collection of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales.

    "Fantastic"

    The Nelson Mandela Favorite Folklore are incredible, and indescribably charming. I cannot recommend these stories enough for children or adults who wish to learn more about African Folklore. I recommend getting all the stories, which will run you less than taking your family to the movies. The narrators are brilliant and bring these tales to life.
