What's A Story, a Story About

Publisher Summary

Winner of the Caldecott Medal Once, all the stories in the world belonged to Nyame, the Sky God. He kept them in a box beside his throne. But Ananse, the Spider man, wanted them – and caught three sly creatures to get them. This story of how we got our own stories to tell is adapted from an African folktale.
