The Bearded Stone is a story from the Rafiki Remembers magazine collection. It was published in the 1990s as part of The Lion King: A Nature Fun and Learn Series.

Synopsis

Anansi the spider happens across a bearded stone that will strike dead anyone who says, "This stone has a beard." Wanting to use this to his advantage, Anansi tricks Little Buck into proclaiming that the stone has a beard, and the stone strikes the buck dead. Anansi makes quick work of the dead animal, using Little Buck's carcass to feed his family for days.

Anansi uses this trick many more times, and his family feasts for many months. Finally, Anansi decides to use his trick on Rabbit, but when the clever rabbit doesn't comment on the stone's strange appearance, Anansi questions Rabbit on whether the stone looks odd or not. Sensing a trap, Rabbit evades all of Anansi's tricks, until Anansi can take no more and yells at Rabbit to say, "This stone has a beard!" Hearing these fateful words, the stone strikes Anansi dead, and Rabbit chuckles over his victory.
