The timeless classic ‘Ant & The Grasshopper’ comes to the tablet. This modern take on the original Aesop's fable, is a beautifully illustrated sound book featuring glorious colourful cartoon style graphics.
The masterpiece tells the story of the ant who works hard all summer preparing his food ready for the cold winter and the cold contrast of the lazy grasshopper who sits back and relaxes, watching and laughing.
The ant spends his days hurrying to the field every morning as soon as the sun rises, fetching grains of wheat taking them back to his ant hill, exhausting himself carrying it, and storing it safely ready for a cold winter.
The grasshopper on the other hand, chills out playing his flute, enjoying the summer rays, living for the moment.
However, there are four seasons in a year and as summer faded into autumn, autumn became winter, it became freezing cold, and snow began to fall. The grasshopper wasn’t quite so jolly now as he grew cold and hungry.
So what does the cheeky insect do? The grasshopper asks the ant that he laughed at all summer for some of his food… And does he get it? No, the ant reminds him of all the work he did in the summer!
