Anansi the spider, a lazy, clever trickster, has figured out how Hyena does his housekeeping--with a magic stick that does all the work for him. Of course, Anansi must have that stick, and this story is about the out-of-control magic that results when he gets it. Children will delight in Jerry Terheyden's reading of this tale; the many creatures, from the snuffly warthog to the gruff lion, all get their own distinct voices, and there are plenty of fun sound effects to round out the production. Terheyden's Anansi is especially funny, and kids will enjoy listening to how the spider gets himself in and out of trouble. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
