The Toad and the Rat. How Baboon Lost his Tail. A spider named Anansi begs the Sky God to let all the stories told about the god instead be told about Anansi. The Sky God agrees, but only if Anansi brings him a swarm of bees, a python, and a leopard. Anansi agrees and goes home to think.

Anansi stretched his eight legs as he sat in the middle of his web, watching the people around their fires in the evening. They were restless and the children were bored. He knew that all the stories were kept in a beautiful wooden box by Nyame, the Sky God. He also knew that Nyame kept the box close to him at all times. For this, he would not be able to use trickery and sneak it away from the Sky God. As the great sun rose in the morning sky, Anansi spun a beautiful silken thread, long enough to reach all the way to the clouds and he scampered up to heaven to talk to Nyame.
