Chapter One

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.

One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and-pop!-out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.

He started to look for some food.

On Monday he ate through one apple. But he was still hungry.

He started to look for some food.

On Tuesday he ate through two pears, but he was still hungry.

He started to look for some food.

On Wednesday he ate through three plums, but he was still hungry.

He started to look for some food.

On Thursday he ate through four strawberries, but he was still hungry.

On Friday he ate through five oranges, but he was still hungry.

On Saturday he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon.

That night he had a stomachache!

The next day was Sunday again. The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf, and after that he felt much better.

Now he wasn't hungry any more-and he wasn't a little caterpillar any more. He was a big, fat caterpillar.

He built a small house, called a cocoon, around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks. Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushedhis way out and ...

he was a beautiful butterfly!

The story is repetitive and fun, good for preschoolers. The illustrations are really cool and will intrigue kids.

One day a caterpillar is born on a leaf and decides that he is hungry. He goes through all different varieties of food and at the end of the story he is stuffed. He then builds a cocoon around him and after a long while, he hatches into a beautiful butterfly.

Wonderful little story with the repetetiveness in the plot that kids love. The epic story of a critter that eats its way through the house wrecking everything in its path has an immediate appeal to any rightthinking kid. And the story really is of the same kind as lots of epic novels for adults. Reading the story to children over and over is fun because it is exciting and amusing also for the adult; the criterion of a really great children's book. A genuinly bonding experience. Admirably illustrated.
