Editor reviews

Anansi's eyes prove to be a little too big for his stomach in Bobby and Sherry Norfolk's entertaining and sprightly Anansi Goes to Lunch.
With roots in African folklore, this charming tale humorously illustrates how Anansi becomes, quite literally, stretched too thin after shortsightedly accepting three lunch invitations at the same time.
Like any good children's audiobook narrator, Bobby Norfolk delivers a warm, energetic performance that will hold children's attention from the start while providing a refreshing moral on the consequences of greed.

Summary

Anansi is invited to three parties and wants to attend them all. He gives each of his hosts a rope to tug, ties the other end around his own waist, and waits to be summoned when the food is served - but when all of the food is ready at the same time, Anansi is caught in the middle! That's why Spiders have small waists today. Illustrated by Baird Hoffmire.
