This much-loved classic picture book follows the caterpillar's week while he eats through a range of foods in preparation for his hibernation and subsequent appearance as a beautiful butterfly. With its die-cut pages and holes to explore, this is a richly satisfying book for children. The cuddly caterpillar toy can be pushed through the giant holes as children follow this simple, hopeful story.
