Description

His travels continue until he has an elephant, which he loses when he chases a bird.

His travels continue until he has an elephant, which he loses when he chases a bird. In this case, the journey's the thing: Anancy's path takes readers through Grifalconi's stylized scenes of the African countryside, where bright, batik-like patterns contrast with the solemn brown faces and careworn postures of the people. This is not the first time Berry has tangled with Spiderman Anancy (1989) and readers will hope it's not his last. A vivid tale and a welcome, polished pairing of author and illustrator.

Anancy Spiderman trades various items with the people he encounters, until he himself is distracted by a bird and ends up empty-handed.
