Abstract
While Bobby Norfolk was visiting the town of Kumasi in Ghana in the summer of 1993, a woman told him, "At four-thirty every afternoon, we try to gather together and have Anansi time." At her invitation, Norfolk attended the community-wide afternoon break and heard elders tell stories of Anansi, the tireless trickster of Ghanian tradition. Anansi appears in these stories in his most playful and creative guises. Norfolk's energetic and affectionate adaptations of Anansi's misadventures brim with action, sound effects, and humor. And now, any time is Anansi Time! Approximately 48 minutes, unabridged, and narrated by Bobby Norfolk.
