Why Anansi has thin legs!

 This is Anansi the spider. It has got eight legs, a big head and a very fat body.

Anansi loves eating. Rabbit is Anansi’s friend. it is cooking greens in its pot.‘Mmmm! I can smell greens!’‘They are not ready yet. Why don’t you stay and wait?’

‘No, I can’t stay, but I’ve got an idea. Pull the web when the greens are ready and I’ll come running!’‘OK, Anansi!’‘Mmmm! I can smell beans!’

‘Come and eat our beans with us. They are almost ready.’

‘No, I can’t, but I’ve got an idea! Pull the web when the beans are ready and I’ll come running!’‘OK, Anansi!’‘Mmmm! I can smell sweet potatoes – with honey!’‘Yes, that’s right. Come and eat my food with me.’

‘No, I can’t, but I’ve got an idea! Pull the web when the sweet po­tatoes are ready and I’ll come run­ning!’‘OK, Anansi!’

When Anansi arrives at the riv­er all his eight legs are tied with webs. All the food is ready and the animals pull the webs. Anansi falls over and its legs get thinner and thinner.‘Maybe that wasn’t a good idea after all. Look at my thin legs! Oh well, maybe there’ssome food at home.’
