Abstract
Here is, after I have found the other eleven, the twelfth – and chronologically perhaps the first – member of this series. Why it had to be so expensive, I do not know. The original procurer found it, as I did others in the series, at Gibert Jeune for a reduced price. The cover presents the conflict well, as the grasshopper lies on a leaf playing her guitar, while the ant runs home with a grain. The title-page presents the same contrast, this time with the two running in opposite directions. A dramatic page which I did not expect portrays visually the ant's abundance as against the grasshopper's plea. The next page shifts to the outdoors and the rejection by one of the other. The grasshopper in winter wears sneakers and a shawl. With the addition of this booklet, we have all twelve pamphlets in the series.
