I adored this one!!! It pairs the original text from Mary Howitt‘s classic poem with fantastic dark pencil illustrations. Left me with a sort of gothic/silent film vibe. #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash @StayCurious #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #Spookoween2022 @TheSpineView #31by31 @Catsandbooks #PointsAThon @dieareader @GHABI4ROSES

This story highlights the culture of the Ashanti people. The story was published in 1972. The illustrations are incredibly bright and the characters are very one dimensional but it shows how family can work together to help each other. It is also a creation story and it shares how the moon was created.

The bright colors and beautiful illustrations stood out to me. The prints and patterns incorporated in each illustration represents traditional Ashanti art

This book is about a spider father and his six sons that each have different gifts. The father falls into trouble and at different points in the story each son helps their father and saves him using their gifts. The father wants to thank his sons by giving them an big ball of light that he found but cannot decide who to give it to. He turns to Nyame, The God of All Things, who places it in the sky for every brother to see
