‘Neil could never have known that he was writing for a confused Jamaican kid who, without even knowing it, was still staggering from centuries of erasure of his own gods and monsters’ MARLON JAMES

Fat Charlie Nancy never knew his dead dad was a god – Anansi the trickster. He never knew he had a brother either.

Now brother Spider is on his doorstep, about to make life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

It’s a meeting that will take Fat Charlie from his London home to Florida, the Caribbean, and the very beginning of the world itself. Or the end of the world, depending on which way you’re looking.

**Includes black and white chapter artwork, foiled and designed boards and beautiful full-colour illustrated endpapers by Monet Alyssa**

‘It’s virtually impossible to read more than ten words by Neil Gaiman and not wish he would tell you the rest of the story’ OBSERVER

‘A warm, funny, immensely entertaining story about the impossibility of putting up with your relations – especially if they happen to be Gods’ SUSANNA CLARKE
