Abstract
This die-cut pamphlet of eight pages, which starts very abruptly without a title-page, continues a saga of things coming together from different times and places. In 2002 I found a French die-cut presentation of LM. In 2007 I found another simple die-cut French presentation of DW from the same publisher and collection. Now I find a third in the series. Like both of those, this fable is told in French prose and evidences several changes in the story from its best-known traditional versions. This ant carries his acorns in a sack. The nattily-dressed grasshopper plays a violin and manages to talk without pausing in his playing. The ant rescues the dying grasshopper, takes him home, and serves him a hot meal. The grasshopper promises henceforth to be more careful about the future, since one does not always have a friend to help him. Like the other two pamphlets mentioned, this booklet is printed in Spain and copyrighted in 1984 by Ediciones Al Saldaña.
