The forty year old Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar book cover: Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, 40th anniversary

'In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf." So begins Eric Carle's classic, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". This book follows the ravenous caterpillar's path as he eats his way through one apple (and the pages of the book itself) on Monday, two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday, and so on, through cherry pie and sausage... The book has a great story and Eric Carle's wonderful collage pictures.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of this iconic book, which was published in 1969.
On Saturday March 21st Waterstones on Mill Street are celebrating with fun related activities between 10.30 and 12pm. Free

Sat 21 Mar 10.30-12pm
