Anansi’s Carnival Adventure
by Alberto Justiniano
with music by Gary Rue
An Afro-Latina spider, Anansi, helps Felipe and his friends save the forest when the mayor of the Caribbean Island town of San Pedro sells the surrounding forest to developers. In a rescue attempt, a group of kids join Anansi, the Spider, and his animal friends in seeking the help for Hurracan the Taino God of the wind to rid the forest of the developers. The motley crew encounters boxing turtles, and giant serpents and trick themselves out of a dangerous situation in pursuit of their mission.
