Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Peppered with Verna Aardema's trademark ideophones--words that mimic actual sounds--this book makes an ideal read-aloud. Brilliantly realized characters and West African flavor come together in Desimini's extraordinary collage illustrations. Includes a glossary of West African terms and pronunciations. Full color.

Review:
"Abundant with textures and shadows, Desimini's vibrant collage art works well. The wife's role as the brains behind the tricks sets this story apart from other Anansi tales."

Margaret Weir, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 12/07/1997

Review:
"Desimini's collages are unusually involving, their apparent simplicity giving way to compositional richness on second and third looks....The text is a bit old-fashioned and stiff, but Aardema's usual sound effects are here, and they add a participatory note that harmonizes well with the playfulness of Desimini's visuals."

Janice M. Del Negro, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, January 1998
