    One thought on “Who's Got Game? The Ant or the Grasshopper?”

    1. This graphic novel is about an Ant and Grasshopper named Forcy G and Kid A. The two have hung out all summer long and then Kid A says its time to split. Forcy G breaks out in a tune sharing his music as Art with everyone. Forcy G goes back to work going to the grocery store and did his chores. He also began to start to dance. Forcy G then knocked on Kid A's door and was asking to come in and was cold and hungry. The Kid A said he should have known what tomorrow would bring. Forcy G tried to expl [...]

    2. I wanted to like this book more than I did. I found the rhythms of the text difficult to grasp at times (I read the book aloud). It seemed to me there were a lot of slant rhymes which are often difficult for younger children to grasp in a book that's aimed for them. I wasn't particularly crazy about the story adaptation either; The Grasshopper and the Ant is one of my favorite fables and I did not feel the characters or the main theme of the story was clear in this version.It is also important t [...]

    3. A very odd adaptation of the Aesop fable. The more I think about it the more I like it. Brings up lots of questions about art, work, materialism, friendship, poverty, and what people value.

    4. Toni Morrison and her son Slade retell one of Aesop's fables here, though I don't know the original (yikes, THAT needs to be fixed) so I'm not sure what sort of liberties they've taken with the story. It was enjoyable enough, and the artwork of the book was delightfully suited to the tale.The artwork, in fact, was what first got my attention; I first pegged it as Johann Sfar when it crossed my desk at work, but upon opening the cover saw that it was someone named Pascal LeMaitre. I'm beginning t [...]

    5. With her son Slade, Toni Morrison has written a series of picture books under the umbrella title Who’s Got Game? However, The Ant or the Grasshopper? deals with concepts that are perhaps too confusing for a young child’s cognitive level. Morrison plays around with Aesop’s Fable and has an ant and grasshopper exploring the importance of friendship, art, and the work of the artist. This story is probably best suited for middle-school ages, but the layout of the book is not overly appealing. [...]

    6. The Aesop's fable with hip-hop ambience. Set in what looks like NewYork City, Ant and Grasshopper spend the summer hanging out in the park, romping and rapping. Fall sets in and Ant feels the need to start gearing up for winter. While he works to prepare his home and store food, Grasshopper keeps making enjoyable music. Winter arrives and the bedraggled Grasshopper looks to Ant to provide refuge. But Ant refuses, saying he "should have known what tomorrow would bring. Then you wouldn't be beggin [...]

    7. I feel this is geared more towards boys than girls. I liked the rhyming - it was well done - as well as the way it was like a comic book. It is unique. The only problem I had with it was that, while the font was pretty, I think it might be difficult for children to read. Either an older child would need to read it, or a parent would need to read it to a younger child. Of course, this second may have been the intention because the rhymes sound better aloud, but it would make learning to read diff [...]

    8. Hmmmmwhat exactly is the moral here? Are we supposed to be sympathetic to the grasshopper? I would use this picture book with it's retelling of a fable for the classroom in a traditional literature unit, but it would be interesting what the kids would articulate as the moral. The font is a little difficult to read, but I think kids would like the comic-style format.

    9. Interesting slant on some classic fables. Don’t expect the endings to be the same: whatever was may not be! Creative, imaginative, and highly entertaining, this children’s audio is well-performed by Toni Morrison and a delight for the whole family.

    10. Foxy G and Kid A are friends who enjoy hanging out all day long. Kid A knows summer brake is over, and it is time to go back to work while Foxy G has a different idea. He just wants to play music at the park. Kid A works really hard to get ready for winter. Winter is here, who’s got game now?

    11. While I can appreciate the effort to make a hip version of the old fable, I wish this hadn't been written in rhyme; it's very awkward and clunky when read aloud.

    12. Awesome modern retelling of the classic Grasshopper/Ant fable. I love the incorporation of a modern themes (artist appreciation, etc.) in addition to the traditional moral of the story.

    13. fantastic retelling of parables in a modern tounge From "The Ant or the Grasshopper" "I quenched your thirst,and fed your soul, you can't spare me a doughnut hole"
