It's a fine bright day, and all the animals are working--all except Anansi, that is! He's sleeping, as usual. Warthog, Lion, and Zebra laugh so hard at his messy house that they wake him up. Anansi stomps off in a huff--right into an amazing secret! Hyena has a magic stick that follows his orders. If Anansi steals the stick, he'll never have to work again, and his home will be the neatest one in town. Is the magic stick his secret for success? Or the beginning of disasters he can't even imagine?

Anansi the spider, a lazy, clever trickster, has figured out how Hyena does his housekeeping-with a magic stick that does all the work for him. Of course, Anansi must have that stick, and this story is about the out-of-control magic that results when he gets it. Children will delight in Jerry Terheyden's reading of this tale; the many creatures, from the snuffly warthog to the gruff lion, all get their own distinct voices, and there are plenty of fun sound effects to round out the production. Terheyden's Anansi is especially funny, and kids will enjoy listening to how the spider gets himself in and out of trouble.
