Celebrate imagination and the human spirit with superhero tales from cultures around the world. These creatures and people with extraordinary powers pop up in folktales in every land! Anansi, the entertaining Spider God from Africa, has web-spinning adventures just like Spiderman. Join with him as he captures invisible fairies and the snake that swallows people so all the stories in the world can be set free. Jack’s hilarious adventure in Ireland takes on a sweet new twist when he gets dancing bugs instead of beans and Tian, the Lord of the Cranes from China, gives to the poor just like Robin Hood. Celebrate our common love of story with these exciting and engaging multi-cultural tales.  Learn more about Master Storyteller Diane Edgecomb at
