Jerry Pinkney's detailed drawings incorporate many shades of color that flow seamlessly across lightly-drawn outlines, conveying mood and emotion even before the story begins. Pinkney chose to tell this fable—Don't put off for tomorrow what can be done today—by contrasting a come-what-may Grasshopper musician with industrious, prepared-for-whatever Ants. Vibrant colors echo the changing seasons, hinting at Grasshopper's impending crossroad. A masterful third in Pinkney's Aesop collection.
Publisher Summary
In this retelling of the classic Aesop fable, hardworking ants stock up for the winter while a fun-loving grasshopper plays all year long, until the cold weather arrives and he realizes his mistake in not planning ahead.

In this stunning companion to the Caldecott Medal-winning The Lion & the Mouse and the highly acclaimed The Tortoise & the Hare, a playful grasshopper wonders why the busy ants around him won't join in his merrymaking as the seasons pass by. But when winter arrives, he soon sees the value of his friends' hard work--just as the ants learn the value of sharing what they've worked for. Featuring a striking, surprise gatefold page, this third book in Jerry Pinkney's gorgeous trilogy of picture book fables subtly suggests a resonant moral: Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
