Summary
Why mosquitoes buzz in people's ears: A tall tale sets off a chain of mishaps in the jungle. Will the jungle creatures ever get the story straight? A story, a story: Once, all the stories in the world belonged to Nyanme, the Sky God. He kept them in a box beside his throne. But Ananse, the Spider Man, wanted them - and caught three sly creatures to get them. The Village of Round and Square Houses: A grandmother explains to her listeners why in their village on the side of a volcano the men live in square houses and the women in round ones
