The Very Hungry Caterpillar
"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 - it has sold over 50 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.
Eric Carle's iconic illustrations have inspired generations of little readers, and his books are must-haves for every nursery.
