Read full description of the books:
“Anansi Goes Fishing” is the sequel to Eric A. Kimmel’s and Janet Stevens’ book “Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock.” This time, Anansi meets his match when he goes fishing with Turtle and Anansi ends up doing all the work to catch a large fish, while Turtle just sits back and enjoys the show. “Anansi Goes Fishing” will be an instant hit to children who are fans of the “Anansi” series.
Eric A. Kimmel’s writing is clever as he brilliantly shows that Turtle can easily handle Anansi’s laziness by tricking him into actually doing work, therefore, showing the true meaning of what work is all about. Janet Stevens’ illustrations are as beautiful as ever as she displays the forest in various colors, mainly green, pink, and brown colors. The illustration that stands out the most in this book is probably the illustration of Turtle himself as Turtle is mostly in brown colors and is shown to be a wise looking animal indeed. I also love the illustrations of Turtle wearing beach outfits as he goes out to the river with Anansi as it indicates that he is truly going to relax while Anansi does all the work with catching the fish.
“Anansi Goes Fishing” is just as clever and hilarious as “Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock” as the moral of the story here is that hard work truly pays off at the end, even when you least expect it! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since I think that smaller children would have trouble sitting through this book since it may be too long for them to handle.

Read information about the authorEric A. Kimmel was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1946. He attended PS 193, Andries Hudde Junior High School, and Midwood High School. Brooklyn College was across the street from his high school, so he didn’t want to go there. He headed west, to Easton, Pennsylvania where he graduated from Lafayette College in 1967 with a bachelor’s degree in English literature.
Eric worked as an elementary school teacher at P.S. 68 in Manhattan while working on his masters degree at New York University. From there he went to the US. Virgin Islands where he worked as a teacher and librarian. He spent a lot of time lying on St. Thomas’ beautiful beaches.
Returning to reality, he finished his Ph.D. degree in Education at the University of Illinois in 1973. He taught courses in language arts, children’s literature, and storytelling at Indiana University at South Bend in South Bend, Indiana from 1973 to 1978, and from 1978 to 1993 at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. Eric retired from college teaching in 1993 to become a full-time writer. He still holds the rank of Professor Emeritus of Education at Portland State.
Eric has wanted to be an author since he first discovered back in kindergarten that people called authors make books. His first book came out in 1974. Since then he has published over fifty titles, many of which have won numerous state awards, appeared on school and library recommended lists, and won prestigious awards such as the Caldecott Honor Medal (Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins) and the Sydney Taylor Picture Book Award (The Chanukkah Guest and Gershon’s Monster).
Eric travels throughout the United States and the world visiting schools, talking about his books, and telling stories. His first love is sharing stories from different countries and cultures. During the last several years he and his wife Doris have visited China, Norway, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Singapore, Canada, and Panama. He is always looking out for ideas for new books.
Eric and Doris live in Portland, Oregon. Eric has a dog named Tasha, a cat named Inky, and a tank full of tropical fish. He has several hobbies. He loves bluegrass music. He keeps his banjo next to his desk so he can practice whenever he takes a break from writing.
