dc.description.abstractThis is a curious square book presenting a Disneyesque version of GA. It seems to be the first in a collectible series of books that arrived by mail, but I cannot find records of other books in the collection. The endpapers feature a variety of characters who might well figure in fable books, like the hare wearing a runner's number. To judge from the bibliographical information facing the title-page, it took a small army to produce this book and sell it all over Europe! While it was not easy to establish simple things like "Who wrote this version?" and "Who illustrated it?" and "When?" it does seem that www.altaya.fr is overall responsible. From what I can learn on the web, altaya and Disney may be two parts of one enterprise. After two pages given to presenting La Fontaine's fable, we find "La Fable pour les enfants." It is summertime, and the grasshopper plays his violin as ants trudge by with sacks over their shoulders. As in Disney's version, the leading ant -- earlier a queen but now "la fourmi la plus sage" -- has pity on the frozen grasshopper. He declares himself repentant. This ant declares that the grasshopper will work: he will amuse the ants with his singing, playing, and dancing. The grasshopper's song says that we have to sing, laugh, dance, and also work. Further, we should never make fun of those who come to our aid. Everyone has different talents and they are all precious. And it is better to do things together. The rest of the book helps students learn about grasshoppers, ants, and playing together.en_US
