While hard at work on her chores, an ant hears the wonderful clickety click chirrup of music coming from the distance. Although she knows she should focus on the task at hand, she can't help but explore the joyful noise!
 
Award-winning team Rebecca and Ed Emberley bring an entertaining new twist to the classic children's. The bright, bold graphics seem to dance and leap, as a bunch of boogying bugs start a celebration of their own.

Praise for The Ant and the Grasshopper

"While maintaining the archetypes of the hardworking ant and laid-back grasshopper, the Emberleys transform Aesop’s fable about preparedness into a joyful celebration of community and music with a Cajun flair."--Publishers Weekly, starred

“The Emberleys offer such a joyful, imaginative interpretation of the classic that even the youngest will understand the unstated message to ‘eat, drink and be merry.’”--Kirkus, starred
