Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Anansi is throwing a party. He invites Turtle, but plays so many tricks on him that Turtle can't have any fun. So Turtle decides to get even and throws a party of his own. A companion to Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock, Anansi Goes Fishing, Anansi and the Talking Melon, and Anansi and

the Magic Stick.

The latest in Kimmel-Stevens series about the spiderthat figures prominently in West African folklore shows how the trickster himself gets tricked, this time by a plodding turtle. Anansi invites Turtle to a party, but his directions are circuitous, Turtle takes forever arriving, and thenAnansi sends him back forvarious items until Turtle has missed the party. Turtle retaliates with an invite of his own to his underwater home that necessitatesAnansiholding on to a crab to keep from floating away, causing himto miss allthe fun. Stevens mixed-media artwork adds to the storys comic intensity.
