It's high summer in the meadow where Alice the ant and Gert the grasshopper live. Alice is hard at work preparing for winter, harvesting heavy loads of seeds. Meanwhile, Gert prefers to play, since winter is ages away. Gert dances through the long days of summer, singing, performing, and creating art out of flowers and leaves. Alice tries to convince Gert to work, but Gert wants to have fun--and to entertain Alice, too She hates to see Alice work so hard.

When winter arrives, Gert's nest is cold and her food supplies are low. But rather than refusing to share, Alice acknowledges the value of Gert's work and the beauty of the art that lightened her load. Alice repays Gert's kindness by sharing her hard-won food.

Based on the classic story of the ant and grasshopper, this is a modern fable with a heartwarming twist that values diverse contributions and honors friendship and the power of art.
