Anansi Finds a Fool book. Acclaimed folklorist Verna Aardema once again weaves a funny and magical African tale about lazy Anansi, who wants a fishing partner who will do all the work with Anansi getting the fish.

Aardema's style, refined over 30 illustrious years, is fluid and economical. Just right for reading or telling. Folklore/Picture book. Waldman's watercolors, more literal than the work of most of her predecessors (notably the Dillons' Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears, 1976 Caldecott), are full of lovely details of textiles, pottery, basketry, and thatch-roofed mud houses.
