Here are two tales from the West African country of Ghana, traditional to the Akan people.
The first story tells about the trickster Anansi, who meets Thunder and is greeted with a magic pot. Instead of feeding his family, greed makes him hide his magic pot. When his family finds the pot, trouble ensues for Anansi.
The second story tells of how Anansi tricks the three princesses into revealing their names, only to have Lizard win the princesses for his wives. One thing you never want to do, is to cross Anansi, and Lizard pays dearly for his transgressions.
