How Elephant Lost His Bottom and Other Ananse Stories

Cover of How Elephant Lost His Bottom and Other Ananse Stories

If you play with tricksters, you will lose your bottom. Ha ha … That’s a new proverb that I just made up.

The elephant will tell you that I am right though. He kept company with Ananse, the trickster, and his bottom became much smaller!

I give you all the details in How Elephant Lost His Bottom and Other Ananse Stories, the 5th collection of the African Fireside Classics series.

It’s not just the elephant who tangled with Ananse. There are eleven more tales in the book of Ananse causing all sorts of trouble for himself and others.
