Foxy G keeps making music---the music that Kid A dances to as he prepares for winter. When the snow comes, Foxy Gs wings wont make music any more. Cold and hungry, he shows up at Kid As warm and cozy house, but Kid A wont let him in. Here, where Aesops grasshopper is defeated, Morrisons is more than a little defiant. Pascal Lemaitres illustrations wittily capture the adventures of this laid-back pair of insects as their values make them part ways. The Morrisons fresh re-telling of The Ant and the Grasshopper injects the tale with exhilarating vibrancy and a fascinating sense of ambiguity. In our versions, says Toni Morrison, the original stories are opened up and their moralistic endings re-imagined: the victim might not lose- the timid gets a chance to become strong- the fool can gain insight- the powerful may lose their grip. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.
