Description

The uncommon to see first U.K. edition of this popular work. 

One day, a tiny and very hungry caterpillar hatches and embarks on a search to find something to eat, gorging on feast after feast for the following five days.

The caterpillar eats apples, pears, plums, strawberries, oranges, chocolate cake, an ice cream come, a pickle, Swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, cherry pie, sausage, cupcake, and watermelon, growing and developing a bad stomach ache before building himself a cocoon.

Illustrated colourfully throughout. 

Written and illustrated by Eric Carle, who is best known for this work.

'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
