This play is inspired by one of the West African Ananzi tales. In some of the traditional stories Ananzi and the other animals are depicted as human, and in other stories the characters are in their animal form. The message that is shared with the listener is the same, but I wrote this play using animals and animals in order to best delight the second grade students. The human characters are the people in the village - elders, and the children who are listening to the story.
