Description

'Hilarious and painfully accurate, The Very Hungover Caterpillar is liable to be one of those parodies that becomes more famous than the original.' Independent

In the gloom of the room, a fully dressed man lies on the sofa.

The next morning, the TV comes on and - ugh! - ! up lurches a thirsty and very hungover caterpillar.

From the bestselling authors of We're Going on a Bar Hunt, comes another hilarious parody of a much-loved children's book.

This time, we follow the quest of one man as he attempts to shake off his hangover, through eating whatever he can get his hands on, and annoying his family in the process.

The perfect book for anyone who fondly remembers the original, but has now grown up and knows all too well just how painful hungover days can be . . .

Review quote

It's the perfect stocking filler for any mum or dad this Christmas. * The Press Association * Very much a loving parody, with the aim of gently teasing any parent (ourselves included) who have ever had to cope with small children and a monster hangover. * Female First * A very amusing take on the children's picture book which makes a great stocking filler. * Parenting Without Tears * Hilarious and painfully accurate, The Very Hungover Caterpillar is liable to be one of those parodies that becomes more famous than the original. * The Independent * Banging read . . . great spoof about to cope with your kids after a night on the sauce * The Sun *
