The Grasshoper's Song


Add your own review!

Overview

Artfully retold by a renowned poet and illustrated with energy and charm by a Caldecott Medalist, this twist on an Aesop fable is as witty as it is satisfying. Every year the Grasshoppers sing and play their instruments and the Ants work in rhythm to the music. The crops come up smoothly, and the Ants bring in the harvest to the Grasshoppers' beat. But when winter comes, the Ants turn their backs on the Grasshoppers, and Jimmy Grasshopper finds this unfair. He's hired Robin, Robin, Robin, and Wren to sue Abigail and Nestor Ant for what he deserves -- R-E-S-P-E-C-T -- and a one-half share of the harvest. But will a jury of his peers agree about the worth of art?
