The Story Thief Paperback
Part of the White Wolves: Stories from Different Cultures series
This retelling of a traditional African folktale explains how we came to have stories in the world. Nyame the sky god has a special treasure - in a big, brass chest are all the stories ever told.
Anansi, the cleverest of spiders, sees that down on Earth, the people are bored.
Unfortunately, she can't spin a tale, but she can spin a web.
So she makes a ladder up into the sky, determined to bring back the stories, whatever it takes.
