Abstract
I first saw a wall-full of this series at Kyobo Book in Seoul in July, '04. I bought one copy, came home, and worked to order the full set of thirty booklets, workbooks, and audio cassettes from the publisher. Each set cost 9,800 Won. I have divided that cost among the book (6800 Won), booklet (1000 Won), and cassette (2000 Won). The colored booklet features twenty-eight thick, sturdy pages and excellent color reproduction. The art is cartoon-like, simple, and direct. This version of the story has the Queen Ant talk with the Grasshopper during summer. When he insists on having fun, she responds: Do as you please. But don't come to me for food later. When he does come during winter, she reminds him of what she said. Then, however, she relents and goes to the kitchen to get him some bread, but when she returns to the door, the Grasshopper and his guitar have already frozen like ice! That frozen grasshopper is a memorable image! Don't be lazy. Always be prepared and diligent. Then you will always be happy.
