The Very Hungry CaterpillarEric Carle’s award winning book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ was first published in 1969 and has sold more than 29 million copies worldwide. The books colourful illustrations and simple to follow words have made ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ such a successful and timeless classic for many a child and parent.
Created in 1969 by Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar started as a children’s book about a caterpillar that eats his way through a variety of different foods before pupating and eventually emerging as a beautiful butterfly. The success of the book is largely due to the educational themes which complement the main story and allow children to familiarise themselves with topics such as counting, different foods, days of the weeks and the life stages of a butterfly.
