Who wants to marry a trickster?
Kweku Ananse, the trickster, is back in this third book of the African Fireside Classics series.
He is looking for a wife and it is no easy matter. He is at his worst! He lies, he cheats and behaves badly.
If you are the tiniest bit romantic, these stories are not for you. In fact, children start crying for nothing, jealousy spreads around the world, etc. etc.
Now, if you have ever wondered what a lazy, greedy and selfish trickster wants most in a wife—it is not brains, not brawn or even beauty.
According to Ananse, the ideal wife should have no mouth! No eating, no speaking! Ha! How does that work out for him?
