The trickster and folk hero, Kwaku Anansi, is a spider with six even wiser sons. In the course of the story, these six sons come to fulfill the promise of their respective colorful names as they work together to rescue their beloved father, when, one day, he wanders far from home and gets lost, seemingly forever...in the belly of a fish. The first son, called See Trouble, is the first to perceive that Anansi is in danger. Road Builder, the second son, builds a path for the six spiders to reach Anansi. River Drinker drains the stream where the troublesome fish lives, and Game Skinner splits open the fish to reveal Anansi, thankfully, still intact. But just as one problem is solved, another descends, and Stone Thrower, together with the last son, Cushion, join forces to rescue father Anansi from that scrape, too. Home safe at last, Anansi decides to reward the rescuing son with a great globe of light. But even with the help of the Ashanti god, Nyame, it is impossible to choose just one spider son. Aptly, the great globe of light is placed in the night sky to bless everyone.
