The Pot of Wisdom: Ananse Stories By Adwoa BadoeIllustrated by Baba Wague DiakitePaperbackAge 7-10 yearsA collection of Ananse stories that were told to the author as he was growing up in Ghana. The tales of Ananse, the spider trickster, deal with the important issues that face us all - justice, money, food, marriage, vanity and self-respect. Sometimes Ananse succeeds and things go his way; other times he makes a fool of himself and is ashamed - but never for very long. Many elements of these stories can be found in other trickster tales - those of African origin, like the Uncle Remus stories, and those of aboriginal American groups, like the coyote tales of North American  native cultures and the jaguar tales from Central and South America.Why Ananse Lives on the CeilingAnanse and the Feeding PotAnanse Becomes the Owner of StoriesAnanse the Even-handed JudgeAnanse the Forgetful GuestThe Mat ConfidencesAnanse and the Pot of WisdomAnanse and the Singing ClockWhy Pig Has a Short SnoutAnanse and the Birds
