Audible Editor Reviews

John J. Akar delivers a colorful, spirited performance of Gerald McDermott's sprightly and imaginative Anansi The Spider, a retelling of the traditional African folktale that finds the mischievous and clever Anansi conflicted as to which of his six sons to reward when they save him from Fish and Falcon after he embarks on a perilous journey.

This refreshing moral on the importance sharing, resourcefulness, and cooperation is as entertaining as it is enlightening, and children of all ages will be immediately drawn in by Akar's soothing and inviting voice in this delightful listen.

Publisher's Summary

Anansi, one of the great folk heroes of the world, is saved from a terrible fate by his six sons in this traditional tale from West Africa.

    "Check Out Bobby Norfolk's Version of this Story!"

    This story is performed also by the amazing storyteller, Bobby Norfolk on "Norfolk Tales." My children (4&6) adore him. He brings this and many other tales to life in an extremely exciting and entertaining way.
