The stories are varied and present different aspects of Anansi. Well done!” 4 out of 5 stars Amazon.co.uk – 20th March 2014 “Anansi stories are well known in the Caribbean and orators like Louise Bennett really brings them to life in the Jamaican dialect. This selection of stores are written in the “English” words and would make an excellent reading book to parents and children of all ages! The stories are not too long, but there is always a moral.” 5 out of 5 stars
