A grasshopper is hopping around when he hops into a pot on a stove. He isn’t in the pot long though because it is far too hot! Next the grasshopper hops into the fridge. Brrrrr! The fridge is freezing and the poor grasshopper hops out of there as quickly as possible. When the grasshopper hops into a clock, he soon discovers that clocks are not good places to be when you are a small insect because they are far too loud.

With novelty features, wonderful sound words, rhymes, and an unexpected twist in the story, this title will delight young readers
