All Stories Become Ananse Stories: A Folktale from Ghana (E-book)
- SKU: EB2
Ananse, the trickster, has a problem…
He is very very clever. In fact, he’s the best trickster of all. But, not enough people know this. Now that, is a problem.
The solution is clear to him—he must own all the stories in the world! But how?
A. Sakyiama was born in Ghana, West Africa. She grew up hearing many of the stories that she now retells for all of us to enjoy.
She writes of the antics of wily folktale characters like Ananse, his son, Ntikuma and his clever wife, Aso. She tells stories of naughty and nice ghosts; scared but brave boys and girls; monsters that eat disobedient children; as well as fantastical tales about why things are the way they are.
A. Sakyiama currently lives in the USA with her family. She is also an avid gardener, or more accurately, a fierce warrior who defends her territory against marauding gangs of deer, woodchucks, rabbits and crows.
