Publisher Summary

In this humorous retelling of the classic fable, Harper the grasshopper is rescued from starvation by an ant, Lark, who wants to learn how to play the fiddle–and soon many of the other insects (including more ants) in the field join Harper’s lessons, until he has a proper insect orchestra to put on a harvest festival.
