Anansi and the Sheep
by Adam Bushnell
illustrated by Nuno Alexandre Viera
Your favourite West African trickster is back. In this story, an act of kindness leads to all sorts of chaos...and trickery. Anansi comes across a lean-looking sheep surviving off dried grass. He feels sure he can get him to lusher plains and so, in one deft move, he breaks the sheep free. As they run away, they're accosted by a lion, then a cheetah, then a panther. To all of them, Anansi frightens them off with a tall, tall tale of the sky falling down. But will they ever reach pastures new? Ideal for newly independent readers and with backnotes for extra reading support. Age 6-8, Paperback 20pp
