Clever Anansi and Boastful Bullfrog A Caribbean Tale by H. Patten


Clever Anansi and Boastful Bullfrog A Caribbean Tale by H. Patten

Bredda Croaky is a special bullfrog, whose skin glows with beautiful colours. But he is a real nuisance - he croaks all day long! Anansi the spider grows tired of this noise, and devises an ingenious plan to silence the boastful bullfrog. 'H' Patten's original Caribbean tale embraces Anansi storytelling tradition, as Clever Anansi teaches Bredda Croaky a lesson.
