Abstract
This is a pleasant landscape-formatted book of 29 pages about 8" x 6". It corresponds to an animated film from the same studio. Its illustrations seem computer generated. Several of the best of them are the impressive two-page spreads on 5-6 and 17-18. The texts are limited to two lines a page in rhyming couplets, with sometimes forced rhymes and colloquial language like "loot" to rhyme with "flute." The grasshopper is "without a single care"; at one point he angers an ant by stealing a berry from him. When he goes to the ants in winter and asks for food, he is sent away. But he has learnt his lesson by the next summer, when he helps with the work. He then spends winter with the ants, playing his flute. This copy was printed upon demand.
