About Anansi The Spider

The greatest tales ever spun!

People say that in a time long, long ago, animals walked on two feet and spoke with words, like we do. And back then it was known by everyone that the cleverest of all the animals in the kingdom was a spider – the infamous Anansi – the original trickster and the master spinner of yarns.

These classic West African and Caribbean tales about the spider hoaxster are brought vividly to life as our hit production returns.
