About the Author:

Janet Stevens has written and/or illustrated many popular books, including Coyote Steals the Blanket: A Ute Tale. She lives with her husband, Ted, and their two children, Lindsey and Blake, in Boulder, Colorado.

Eric A. Kimmel has written, retorld, and adapted a number of stories from around the world, including two other Anansi titles, Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock and Anansi Goes Fishing. The Anansi Tales are originally from West Africa but are also familiar in Caribbean culture, where Anansi is a beloved folklore character. Professor of Education at Portland State University, Dr. Kimmel and his wife, Doris, live in Portland, Oregon.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Another of Kimmel's retellings of the fabled African spider and his escapades, joining Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock (1990) and Anansi Goes Fishing (1992, both Holiday). In this tale, lazy Anansi eats his way into Elephant's melon but is then too bloated to crawl out. The always sneaky spider decides it is a perfect opportunity to play a trick and so convinces the animal that he owns a talking melon. Elephant can't wait to share his discovery with King Monkey. Along the way he is joined by Hippo, Warthog, Ostrich, Rhino, and Turtle. King Monkey, skeptical at first, becomes irate when the melon insults him. Of course, the resulting mayhem only adds to Anansi's delight. The same elements that made Kimmel's earlier books popular are in evidence here. The snappy narration is well suited for individual reading or group sharing. The colorful line-and-wash illustrations are filled with movement and playful energy. Stevens's anthropomorphic animals are both expressive and endearing. A surefire hit.
