 What can you get for a grain of corn if you are as crafty as Ananse, the trickster?


An Ananse story, written and narrated by A. Sakyiama


This is an audio-ebook. In addition to text, it includes the author-narrated audio of the story. It's a fun format that allows you to enjoy books by reading, listening, or reading and listening at the same time. This is a wonderful, low-stress way to help struggling readers find pleasure in reading. 


Listening makes the difference. Kids see the words highlighted on the page and at the same time, are able to hear how the words should be read. This way, they build reading skills and a richer vocabulary. 


Also, it's just plain fun sometimes to relax and have someone else read to you. 🙂

A boy is imprisoned by a witch and must tell her a new scary story each night to stay alive. This thrilling contemporary fantasy from J. A. White, the acclaimed author of the Thickety series, brings to life the magic and craft of storytelling. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

Alex’s original hair-raising tales are the only thing keeping the witch Natacha happy, but soon he’ll run out of pages to read from and be trapped forever. He’s loved scary stories his whole life, and he knows most don’t have a happily ever after. Now that Alex is trapped in a true terrifying tale, he’s desperate for a different ending—and a way out of this twisted place.

This modern spin on the Scheherazade story is perfect for fans of Coraline and A Tale Dark and Grimm. With interwoven tips on writing with suspense, adding in plot twists, hooks, interior logic, and dealing with writer’s block, this is the ideal book for budding writers and all readers of delightfully just-dark-enough tales.
