The Very Hungry Caterpillar

by Eric Carle

A pop-up version of Eric Carle's classic story of the hungry caterpillar who ate his way through an increasing number of various food items. Once full, he weaves a cocoon, then transforms into a butterfly. This pop-up version was created for the book's 40th anniversary.

Tthere's nothing like a well-executed pop-up book, and this one is beautifully done. You've surely seen this classic title, perhaps from your own childhood. It's unquestionably one of the most popular number books ever. Transforming the story into pop-up format adds an extra element of fun.
