"Cute book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I didn't grow up with this book however I hear fond memories from people who did. My baby seems to like it!


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.

This board book edition of what is surely a classic picture book is glossy, sturdy and ideal for curious little hands to get to grips with. (Ages 9 months to 3 years)
