The little spiders tell Anancy, the trickster spider, of the scary things at the haunted house. Anancy, dismissing them, visits the house anyway. He gets tricked, and it’s the little spiders who rescue him. With his bold and colourful illustrations, Jorisch succeeds in capturing Anancy’s many emotions. mRb
