dc.description.abstractHere is 16-page, landscape-formatted booklet (7½" x 6") dedicated by Iduna-Germania Insurance "to our little and big friends for entertainment and stimulus as a sign of solidarity." The lettering is lovely and the five full-page colored cartoonlike illustrations delightful. The story, described in the colophon as after La Fontaine, takes a rather different turn at its conclusion. When the grasshopper goes through the snow to ask the ant for food, the ant is already deep under the earth with his children and cannot even hear the grasshopper knocking. When spring comes, the ant goes out to say hello to his neighbor but finds him lying frozen and starved to death in a dark corner of his flimsy summer home. The moral? "Let us be like the ant! A useful care is precaution; the best precaution is insurance from Iduna-Germania." Of course! Insurance is the real meaning of this fable! Besides a simple staple in the middle, there is a strong binding through two holes punched into the left portion of the cover and succeeding pages. This is a great ephemeral find!en_US
