The Ants and the Grasshopper by Jackie Walter

Grasshopper lazes around, singing in the summer sunshine and laughing at the hardworking ants. He's far too busy to collect food for the winter. But what will happen when the cold weather comes? A beautifully illustrated retelling of this favourite traditional story. Must Know Stories includes favourite tales, celebrating the diversity of our literary heritage. Level 1 stories are told in under 500 words, for children to read independently.
