Anansi and the Mangoes

It's February (Black History Month!) so a perfect time to learn about the African spider trickster, Anansi (and read loads of Anansi books). By far my favorite retelling is the Gerald McDermott version, primarily for his awesome geometric illustrations:

We took a cue from McDermott, and created our own cut paper collaged family of spiders.
Lots and lots. Like a hundred spiders.

And some of them became movie stars! Watch our animated story of Anansi and the Mangoes here.
