About this title


The legend of Anansi is a legend told by storytellers and parents throughout the world, and Philip Sherlock brings this original Spider Man to life!

Fifteen Jamaican folk tales, illustrated with over fifty black and white drawings.

About the Author:

As a child growing up in Jamaica, Philip Sherlock listened in the evenings to these West Indian tales, which he now retells with humor and warmth.
The illustrator, Marcia Brown, knows well the background atmosphere for these tales, and her drawings capture completely their gaiety and subtlety.
