Description

"In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf."

*********

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic children's story - the essential first book for babies.

In this 2018 edition, Eric Carle's artwork has been restored to its original bright, bold colours.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has sold over 45 million copies worldwide. Its vivid and colourful collage illustrations and its deceptively simple, hopeful story have helped it become the most read children's book in Britain.

With its die-cut pages and finger-sized holes to explore, this is a richly satisfying book for babies and toddlers.

In this sturdy board book format, your little one is safe to play and tumble with their copy. This new edition also comes with an extra tough cover, so it can stay beautiful for longer.

Eric Carle's iconic illustrations have inspired generations of little readers, and his books are must-haves for every nursery.

"Every child should have a copy" - The Telegraph

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
