In an Israeli retelling of “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” Cricket plays music all week and leaves little time to prepare for Shabbat, while Ant works so hard that she oversleeps and burns her cake. Luckily, neighbor Cricket has borrowed enough ingredients to bake a cake. The rhyming text (translated from Hebrew) is uneven, but the art adds nice cultural specificity.
