A little cricket hatches out of an egg eager to respond to the friendly greetings of everyone he meets. From dawn to dusk, the cricket tries to chirp back to a variety of insects--a locust, a praying mantis, and a spittlebug, among others--but ever time he rubs his legs together nothing happens. When night falls, he meets a female cricket who is also quiet. This time, when the cricket rubs his legs together, a computer chip plays his beautiful song.
