Waterstones Says

With its pioneering, hand-painted tissue paper illustrations and interactive elements, Carle’s preschool masterpiece has beguiled generations of children, eager to follow the eponymous hero’s gastronomic adventure. From its iconic opening line to the transcendent reveal of the finale, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a true touchstone of children’s publishing.


"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.

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

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar”

Simple story. Great bold, colourful illustrations. My daughter loves putting her fingers in the holes on each page - aren't books great when they are about so much more than just the words. Great entertainment... More

“Just what I was looking for”

This is the basic story book in cardboard- great for little hands! I especially love the pages where the caterpillar eats through the all of the food- fun for little fingers exploring the book. Bought for my nephew... More

“Excellent”

An excellent classic book. This one is great for my 2 year old because it's a board book so it withstands a lot of page turning by heavy hands.

A great addition to any child library
