Customer reviews

By Diana Boswarva 27 Sep 2013 5

This is a lovely board book edition of the classic story. This particular edition is smaller than the original, but I find this size more for little hands.

This edition is a lovely gender neutral newborn gift.

By Anne-Maree 20 Jun 2012 1

The board book is a smaller version of the original and unfortunately the finger holes have been shrunken to an unusable size :(

This is a great newborn baby present for young couples. Will last forever and is different from the run of the mill pastel baby clothing gift :-)

this is a picture book about a very hungry caterpiler. it starts of as a tiny egg and end up a butterfly. the colourfly read is my daughters favourite and i recomend it.

Editorial reviews

Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears before turning into a beautiful butterfly. The board version stands up well to the inevitable poking of little fingers through the holes in the pages. (2-4 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
