Author RUBADIRI VICTOR reads chapter 5 from his new novella 'ANANSI & THE BOOK OF NIGHT'- the 2nd book in the 'New Adventures of Anansi' series. It is years after the adventures of ANANSI & THE 10 DRAGONS and there is another mystery panicking the Kingdom of Animals: the King of Bats has disappeared leaving only an outline of ash on the ground! But this is only the beginning... Now married to the Lion Prince, Anansi must figure out what is going on quickly as mystery piles up upon mystery and every part of the Kingdom seems to be crashing down. Is she battling armies of evil invaders hiding in the shadows- or are the Kingdom's greatest enemies coming from within?...
