Rising Sun, Rising Moon weaves together two colorful Native American and African folktales. In the first story, a boy named Rising Sun discovers his strange and mystical lineage through a quest to discover the identity of his father. The second tale is of the trickster spider, Anansi, and her six talented children who must constantly save their mother from the jaws of hungry but not-so-bright predators.
