The evergreen tale of the ugly duckling gets a minibeast spin in this adorable picture book from the legendary Julia Donaldson, in which an unremarkable caterpillar is about to undergo a fabulous transformation.
From Julia Donaldson, bestselling author of The Gruffalo, and award-winning illustrator Yuval Zommer, comes a charming minibeast twist on the ugly duckling story.
Crawling through the garden, the little Woolly Bear Caterpillar wonders what kind of moth she will become. Bonny and bright, stunning and smart, but not kind, the other caterpillars laugh at the small, plain Woolly Bear. There is one thing that they are sure of: Woolly Bear could never be as beautiful as them! But could one little caterpillar be about to undergo a truly terrific transformation?
Brilliantly written and stunningly illustrated this engaging picture book comes complete with a non-fiction mini book written by a nature specialist.
