About the Book

Anansi the Spider squeezes his way into a big, juicy melon in Elephant’s melon patch, and eats and eats until he is round as a berry. Now he has a real problem — he’s too fat to climb back out of the melon. While he waits to get thin again, he has fun talking to Elephant. Elephant is so impressed with the “talking melon” that he takes it to show the king. How Anansi amuses himself by fooling the other animals will delight readers who like to watch a good trickster at work.
