An engaging and cunning tale from a renowned storyteller and celebrated artist featuring a familiar character from the oral tradition of the Ashanti people of Ghana. Anancy became a symbol of survival when introduced to Caribbean folklore by African slaves. Children will shiver with delight at the suspense of the creepy haunted house, flying bats, mysterious noises, and falling objects! Bold, dark, atmospheric illustrations are splashed with bright colour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
St?phane Jorisch's buoyant watercolor and pencil illustrations ... capture the essence of Anancy beautifully.
Bold and often wacky depictions of the characters and setting in this tale should tickle the fancy of readers. Recommended.--Val Nielsen"Canadian Materials" (09/20/2002)
Stephane Jorisch's buoyant watercolor and pencil illustrations ... capture the essence of Anancy beautifully.--Jeffrey Canton"Quill and Quire" (11/01/2002)
It is no wonder that tales featuring the lovable eight-legged trickster Anancy...turn up regularly in children's literature. Most are re-workings of stories which originated among the Ashanti people of Ghana; however Keens-Douglas' tale entitled Anancy and the Haunted House is an original one. As a first class storyteller, the author knows exactly how to produce a written text that mimics the oral tradition.... [Stephane] Jorisch's always bold and often wacky depictions of the characters and setting in this tale should tickle the fancy of readers young and old. The style and length of this Anancy tale makes it perfect, either by itself, or as one of several selections chosen by a teachers or librarian, for story hour presentation. Recommended.--Val Nielsen"Canadian Materials" (09/20/2002)
