About the Book
This hilarious trickster tale, fifth in the popular Anansi series, once again combines the talents of Eric A. Kimmel and Janet Stevens.

Anansi and Turtle are good friends. But when Anansi invites Turtle to a party, he plays so many tricks on him that Turtle can't have any fun. So Turtle decides to get even—with an outrageous party of his own.

"Children will delight in hearing this tale. . . . Laughs abound."—School Library Journal

"Stevens's mixed-media artwork adds to the story's comic intensity."—Booklist
