In this stunning companion to the Caldecott Medal-winningThe Lion & the Mouseand the highly acclaimedThe Tortoise & the Hare, a playful grasshopper wonders why the busy ants around him won't join in his merrymaking as the seasons pass by.

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.
