About the Book

“In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.” So begins Eric Carle’s modern classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

One sunny Sunday, the caterpillar was hatched out of a tiny egg. He was very hungry.

On Monday, he ate through one apple; on Tuesday, he ate through three plums–and still he was hungry.

Strikingly bold, colorful pictures and a simple text in large, clear type tell the story of a hungry little caterpillar’s progress through an amazing variety and quantity of foods.

Full at last, he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep, to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into a butterfly!

"The very hungry caterpillar literally eats his way through the pages of the book—and right into your child's heart..." - Mother's Manual
