Spider Anancy uses his wits to get food…. One-day Spider Anancy caught a little fish and the fish talked Spider Anancy in letting it go… The fish transported Spider Anancy to another land where things were better …but Spider Anancy disobeyed the Queen of that rich fertile land and was sent back to his dismal drought ridden kingdom…...Where once again he caught the little fish…. Spider Anancy recognized the little fish and remembered he was magical and special
