Description - Anancy and Mr Dry-Bone by Fiona French

Poor Anancy and rich Mr Dry-Bone both want to marry Miss Louise, but she wants to marry the man who can make her laugh. She does not laugh at Mr Dry-Bone's conjuring tricks and acrobatics so Anancy decides to ask the animals for help in winning her over. A delightful story, based on characters from traditional Caribbean and West African folk-tales, with vibrant illustrations.
