dc.description.abstractHere is a refreshingly innovative presentation -- in watercolor and colored pencil -- that, in a surprise ending, has the ant discovering the wanna-be singer in himself. Ant is an accountant who wears pince-nez and wears a visor. He counts the items in his storeroom every afternoon. Grasshopper wears a red cap and plays a fiddle. When Ant says "Well, I never!" Grasshopper responds "Well, I always." Grasshopper's fiddling sometimes confuses Ant: "Drat that hoppergrass!" At Grasshopper's first winter request, Ant slams the door and returns to counting. In a November dream, Ant is a performer hearing "Play! Dance! Sing!" He can do nothing. He gets up to seek and find Grasshopper on his doorstep. After he tells him to go home and hears "No home," he drags him into the house and before the fire. After many winter days and nights together, the two catch each other saying "Anyone can count" and "Anyone can sing." The book's good last line is "Everybody counts!" I like this book!en_US
