Book Reviews - The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

UK Kirkus Review » Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears before turning into a beautiful butterfly. The board version stands up well to the inevitable poking of little fingers through the holes in the pages. (2-4 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
