Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Anansi the spider and his wife, Aso, outsmart the Sky God and win back the beloved folktales of their people, in a humorous retelling of an Ashanti folktale. Reprint.

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
