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.

The little bug makes me happy. I'd like to be friends with the little bug.

This is like a simpler version of Dr. Seuss's Yertle the Turtle. We read it so many times before returning it!

Another funny read from Daniel Miyares.
Seek out "Float" and "Pardon Me" if you enjoyed this one!
