    " Grasshopper wants to go on a journey and he does. Along the road he encounters many different and unique characters who are for the most part stuck in their ways without realizing it. I really like how Grasshopper is so non-judgemental. "

    " Sooo cute! It's hard to find books at this reading level that are interesting enough to read more than once and enjoy it every time. This is a keeper! Grasshopper goes for a walk and runs into all sorts of interesting insect characters. Each new encounter is quirkier than the next. Very amusing. "
