Review Text

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)

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.show more

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

"A favourite in our house. My daughter is transfixed from the 'teeny-tiny-shiny-egg' until the 'beauuuutiful butterfly' at the end. She enjoys 'helping' with the story, and in fact, while she can't read yet, pretty well knows it word for word we have read it so much. Highly recommend this book!"show more
