Gnu and Shrew match wits while trying to reach a cave filled with diamonds in this STEM-filled twist on "The Ant and the Grasshopper."

"A refreshing demonstration of different approaches and a friendship that transcends those contrasts." --Booklist

When Gnu says that there's a cave filled with diamonds across the river, Shrew is intrigued. But Gnu seems to be all talk, fantasizing about riches yet dismissing all of Shrew's suggestions. As Gnu dreams his days away, tossing out one big idea after another, Shrew spends his nights trying to make those dreams a reality. Will Gnu's big ideas ever be able to mesh with Shrew's hard work to make something remarkable happen?

Author Danny Schnitzlein uses deadpan storytelling to put an entertaining spin on "The Ant and the Grasshopper" that values the roles of both dreamers and doers. Anca Sandu's illustrations, rendered in pencil and colored digitally, add to the humor and whimsy. eBook available.
