Traditional literature, trickster tale from West Africa
The story of how Anansi, the spider man, tricks the sky god into giving away his stories. The paper cut illustrations are not appealing due to many colors of the same hue resulting in a lack of vibrance and contrast, and due to a lack of movement and expression. The story itself is engaging, but I prefer the version told in Gail Haley's "A Srory, A Story" - the tricks are more surprising.
