Text: English, SpanishFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- Two bilingual folktales. Anansi. . . is rooted in the African-American tradition of the Atlantic Coast region of Nicaragua. Tricky Brother Anansi goes into the cattle business with Brother Tiger, who has won a large amount of money in a lottery, and they become very successful. After some years, Brother Anansi decides it is time to put one over on Brother Tiger, and he offers to divide the animals and mark them. Needless to say, he will come out ahead. The brightly contrasting illustrations in a folk-art style feature the jaguar, which lives in Central America (unlike the tiger), and is referred to as a tiger in the folklore of the area. Uncle Nacho . . . receives a new hat as a gift from his niece. He tries to throw away his old hat, but it keeps coming back to him as people recognize it and return it to him. He is discouraged until his niece tells him: "Stop worrying about the old hat, Uncle Nacho. Think about your new hat instead." The story was adapted from a Nicaraguan folktale performed by the Puppet Workshop of Nicaraguan National Television. Striking colors complement earth tones in the primitive-style illustrations.
