The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast is a concept album and subsequent live rock opera appearing in 1974 and 1975 respectively, based on the children's poem of a similar title. The album cover design is from Alan Aldridge's design for a 1973 book based on the poem. The album spawned a hit song, "Love Is All," which reached Number 1 in the Netherlands and Belgium.

In 1975 Edwards and Hand set to music the poems of a best selling 1973 children's picture book, illustrated by Alan Aldridge (famous for his work with the Beatles), called The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast which was loosely based on a poem called "Butterfly's Ball, and the Grasshopper's Feast" written in 1802 by William Roscoe. It was originally released on the Argo label and has been re-released by wizardpresents
