Anansi includes two hilarious Jamaican folktales about the original story spinner himself, Anansi the Spider. He may be small in size but his boasts are as tall as tales get.
In the first story, Anansi takes a challenge from Tiger to outwit Snake. When he succeeds, Anansi wins possession of all the stories in the jungle. In the second story, Anansi devises a scheme to play an important role in his mother-in-law's funeral. But when he gets caught in his own lies, Anansi winds up totally bald.
East of the Sun, West of the Moon is a Scandinavian tale that takes place deep in the blue forest of Norway. Here lived a peasant farmer and his family. During a fierce storm, a white bear arrives and offers a strange proposal of wealth if their youngest daughter will go to live with him in his golden cave. The family agrees and the daughter goes off with the mysterious white bear. For a time all goes well, but when the girl ignores the kindly bear's advice, she must travel to the castle that lies East of the Sun and West of the Moon to face the horrible Troll Queen.
