Bobby Norfolk's animated, dynamic performance of Anansi and the Tug O' War brings this delightful children's book to life.
In a clever reinterpretation of the story of David and Goliath, Norfolk's diminutive spider Anansi uses his shrewdness to outwit the unsuspecting Elephant and Killer Whale in the titular game normally associated with size and brute strength.
This charming, breezy listen is a testament to the power of imagination and creative thinking, and Norfolk's engaging, colorful voice will hold children's attention from start to finish.

This story is a perpetual favorite of mine.
Just as with Anansi and the Pot of Beans, the music and the pacing of the performance were excellent.
I loved the exchange between Anansi and the whale.
There is wonderful wry humor in this piece.
Rated G. 100% family friendly.
