Product description

From Amazon

"In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf." So begins Eric Carle's modern classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. More than 12 million copies of this book have been sold in its original, full-sized edition, and the beloved tale of science and gluttony has been translated into 20 languages. This five-by-four-inch miniature edition is truly tiny, with tiny type, but it is a nice size for small hands to hold and flip through the pictures. Despite its diminished state, the book is complete in every detail, following the ravenous caterpillar's path as he eats his way through one apple (and the pages of the book itself) on Monday, two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday, and so on, through cherry pie and sausage--until he is really fat and has a stomachache. And no doubt you know what happens next! Kids love butterfly metamorphosis stories, and this popular favorite teaches counting and the days of the week, too. A fun gift package for caterpillar fans. (Baby to preschool) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the board_book edition.

About the Author

Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has been translated into 70 languages and sold over 55 million copies. Carle illustrated more than seventy books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote, and more than 170 million copies of his books have sold around the world. In 2003, Carle received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award (now called the Children’s Literature Legacy Award) for lifetime achievement in children's literature. In 2002, Eric and his wife, Barbara, cofounded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art (www.carlemuseum.org) in Amherst, Massachusetts, a 40,000-square-foot space dedicated to the celebration of picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world, underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form. Eric Carle passed away in May 2021 at the age of 91. His work remains an important influence on artists and illustrators at work today. www.eric-carle.com --This text refers to the board_book edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a classic must have
By Lumpy on September 27, 2019
This is to replace my lost copy.
It is smaller than I expected. I didn't read the size, so my fault. I thought it would be closer to the size of the Brown Bear board book.

I read books to children (daycare) so I should have bought a bigger one.
I'm including a picture of it with several famous books that most people know the size of so you can see the size.

By Ray on April 24, 2021
My son loves the caterpillar book, he reads it, I read it for him, he watches the story on youtube. However, the first one wore out around the binding area, so I bought the 2nd book for him, and he is so happy now, reading it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute book for my little ones
By Jessella on August 28, 2021
This book is great and I read it to my little ones the night of the day it came. We all enjoyed it, my baby enjoyed the colourful illustrations and my older one enjoyed it in general. I remember the book being bigger when I was younger but it’s alright because it’s still the same cute story inside.
