 The trickster is on a mission!


He is most certainly cunning and clever, but is Kweku Ananse the most clever of all? Well, he thinks so and in Today‘s Water, he sets out to prove it! 


Along the way, we find out why the sky is far from the ground and how it came about that all stories are Ananse stories.


Enjoy this collection of folktales from the Asante people of Ghana, featuring Kweku Ananse, who is sometimes a man and sometimes a spider.
