A much-loved classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has won over millions of readers with its vivid and colourful collage illustrations and its deceptively simply, hopeful story. With its die-cut pages and finger-sized holes to explore, this is a richly satisfying book for children.

"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
