Description
The Caldecott Medal–winning illustrator of Norton Juster's The Hello, Goodbye Window, Chris Raschka here imagines a garden full of animal personalities in his boldly stylized watercolor cartoons to illuminate Nikki Giovanni's clever retelling of a favorite Aesop fable. Everyone knows how the Grasshopper played all summer while the Ant worked, and when it was harvest time the Ant had food while the Grasshopper went hungry. But what if the grasshoppers were playing music, helping the ants to keep their pace and work happily and efficiently? Shouldn't musicians be paid for their art? The contestants take their case before a jury of their peers in this fable for thoughtful readers 10 to adult.
