"The toy brings the book to life for my son - excellent package"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My son loves the book being read to him and when you combine it with the toy it makes it 3D and brings it to life. A classic book that is tactile for the child and always brings out smiles.

Eric Carle's classic tale teaches children about numbers, days of the week and time as the newly hatched (and very hungry!) caterpillar munches his way through die-cut pages.

This delightful gift boxed set contains a sturdy board book edition of this bestselling picture book and an adorable soft plush toy.

A much-loved classic, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” has won over millions of readers with its vivid and colourful collage illustrations and its deceptively simply, hopeful story. With its die-cut pages and finger-sized holes to explore, this is a richly satisfying book for children.

The board book edition in this box set is glossy, sturdy and ideal for curious little hands to get to grips with.

(Ages 9 months to 3 years)

“Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears before turning into a beautiful butterfly. The board version stands up well to the inevitable poking of little fingers through the holes in the pages.” (Kirkus UK)
