About the Book
In Anancy’s Family Reunion, Anancy has been up to his old tricks, but a visit from family will change
everything – or will it? This new and imaginative take on Anancy folklore will reintroduce a new
generation of children to a character deeply rooted in African and Caribbean oral tradition.
