~ 4. Anansi and the Coconut ~


Anansi was eating a coconut, smacking his lips happily.
"What's that?" Tiger asked him.
"It's one of my balls!" said Anansi. "Balls are very sweet."
Then Anansi smiled at Tiger. "Hey, Tiger, your balls are much bigger than mine. I bet they are even sweeter than mine are! Let's go to the blacksmith. He can use his hammer and anvil to break off one of your balls so you can eat it."
Tiger and Anansi went to the blacksmith. 
Tiger lay down, and the blacksmith banged him with a hammer.
Hard!
Tiger died.
Then Anansi ate Tiger, balls and all.
