Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock

Written by Eric Kimmel • Illustrated by Janet Stevens

This book is about a spider named Anansi that tricked all the animals but not Little Bush Deer. Anansi got the animals to say, "What a strange moss-covered rock". Then the animals would fall down and sleep for an hour. Anansi would go and steal their food.

I liked when Anansi was talking to Little Bush Deer and Little Bush Deer wouldn't say the right words. He knew Anansi's trick. Anansi is my favorite character because he played the tricks and got mad at Little Bush Deer for not saying the words.

My friends would like this book because it is funny.
