For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.

Follows the progress of a hungry caterpillar as he eats his way through a varied and very large quantity of food until, full at last, he forms a cocoon around himself and goes to sleep.

This mini hardcover edition of Eric Carle's classic story begins one sunny Sunday, when the caterpillar was hatched out of a tiny egg. He was very hungry. On Monday, he ate through one apple; on Tuesday, he ate through three plums--and still he was hungry. Strikingly bold, colorful pictures and a simple text in large, clear type tell the story of a hungry little caterpillar's progress through an amazing variety and quantity of foods. Full at last, he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep, to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into a butterfly

Brilliantly innovative designer and artist Eric Carle has dramatized the story of one of Nature's commonest yet loveliest marvels, the metamorphosis of the butterfly, in a picture book to delight as well as instruct the very youngest reader or listener. Cleverly die-cut pages show what the caterpillar ate on successive days, graphically introducing sets of up to 10 objects and also the names of the days of the week in rotation, as well as telling the central story of the transformation of the caterpillar. The final, double-page picture of the butterfly is a joyous explosion of color, a vibrant affirmation of the wonder and beauty of Nature.Watch a Video

I picked up this book while shopping for my baby's first library items and couldn't put it down. I read it to him while he's nursing because the title and story line fit him perfectly. The small size makes it easier to let him see the colorful pics while he's busy eating and his smiles make it a favorite of mine!

I didn't realize this book was so small when I purchased it! It's 3x5! Very cute book, but hard for my 2 little kids to see it when I read it to them both.

It wasn't what I expected. The size of the book was maybe 3"x5". It was more like a pocket sized book.

I love them. I purchased 20 of them for the low price of $3.18. My daughter's first birthday is approaching and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is her theme.... I also purchased some butterfly nets from the Dollar Tree to use as the grab bags and this miniature book is the perfect size. I would recommend....
