About the book:

Can the legendary trickster be out-tricked?

All the young men had gathered in the village courtyard to hear the Chiefs pronouncement: Whoever guesses his daughters name will have her hand in marriage, inherit half his riches, and become the next Chief. No one outside the palace had ever heard the royal daughters name.

In a stroke of luck Ananse the spider discovers the secret.

I, Ananse the most wise . . . the most clever . . . I alone know the name of the Chiefs daughter! . . .

But clever Lizard has plans of his own.

Pat Cummings lively retelling and vibrant illustrations capture all the mischief and humor of Ananse, one of the most popular characters of West African lore.
