a. Summary: This is a Jamaican folktale with many different animals interacting with Anansi the Spider Man. Anansi interacts with Tiger, Turtle, Pigeon, Alligator, Crab, and others. Each animal has a distinct character and the tales show how Anansi the Spider Man can accomplish great things even though he is small in stature.
b. Review: Folktales are my second favorite genre. When reading Anansi the Spider Man I like the Caribbean twist on these stories. I can see how the youth of Jamaica really enjoy these tales. The tiger character is also really enjoyable, he is always trying to pick on Anansi to get laughs or just because he enjoys it.
c. School Use: In the classroom you could use this book in a folk tales lesson. The students could write a short play in groups and present one of the folktales in this. Maybe a day or two of preparation and then present.
