Bring me a rock

Available Formats:


  • Author: Miyares, Daniel

    From the author-illustrator of Pardon Me! and Float comes a funny and fun picture book about a little bug who proves that even the small can be mighty. When a power-hungry grasshopper king wants a throne to loom over his bug subjects, he summons each of them to "bring me a rock!" One by one, the bugs bring him the biggest rocks they can carry, but one little bug can contribute only a very small pebble. The grasshopper king shuns the little bug. But when his throne is in danger of tipping, that little bug might be the only one who can save him. With beautiful, bold illustrations and a folk-tale sensibility, Bring Me a Rock! is a classic underdog tale with a humorous twist.
