Winner Description: 
illustrated and retold by Gail E. Haley, and published by Atheneum
Winner Blurb: 

This tale tells how Ananse, the Spider man, bargained with the Sky God to bring stories to earth for children to hear.  The text, made rhythmic through the use of repetitive phrases, is complemented by vibrantly colored woodcuts.  The illustrations are forceful yet full of the clever humor and spirit of the African tale.
