Kids will get lost in the visually stunning, imaginative world of this wordless picture book!

In this colourful and moving portrait told from the up-close perspectives of a young girl and a grasshopper, a garden comes alive creatures, plants, and surprises of nature.

While investigating and admiring the insects in her garden, the girl discovers how her actions impact the little creatures: she finds a caterpillar inside a pea pod. She places the caterpillar on an anthill, and the ants swarm it!

When she captures a grasshopper, she discovers one of its legs has fallen off. To keep it safe from the ants, she places it in a jar — only for another curious creature to come investigate.

As the day progresses, the girl learns the profound effect she can have on the natural world around her.

Grasshopper reveals to readers a remarkable perspective on the natural world — and the importance of respecting the creatures who call it their home.
