Anansi Goes Fishing

Trickster Tales from Around the World

Tales travel — just as do tricksters — from country to country. Some things stay the same while others may change here and there. Most of the trickiness is done by animals, but on the pages of these books, you’ll also meet a very clever boy named Wiley and his mother. Together they outwit the Hairy Man just as Turtle manages to outwit a classic trickster named Anansi.

Meet these and other tricksters as they travel from Africa to the Americas and places on the way. You’re likely to laugh out loud when you meet these crafty, sometimes outsmarted, but always enjoyable characters!
