Synopsis

Anansi and the firefly Anansi and the firefly Life and Living by Emma Attwell

This story is based on an African legend. It is about a firefly and a spider named Anansi who go hunting for eggs. The firefly lights the way and leads Anansi to a field where there are eggs. Each time they find eggs, Anansi grabs them and keeps them for himself. Firefly is angry and leaves him alone. Anansi has nowhere to go, but sees Tiger's house in the distance. He pretends to be his godson, but Tiger is not tricked. Tiger and his wife eat some of the eggs for supper and they all go to sleep. Tiger puts the rest of the eggs in a pot with a lobster. Each time Anansi tries to take the eggs, the lobster pinches him.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
