One day, a very small caterpillar begins eating. He is very hungry, so he continues to eat his way through leaves, plants, and flowers, but that is not enough. Finally, the steadily growing caterpillar eats his way through cake, pie, a lollipop, and several other goodies…and then feels a bit ill. He wraps himself in a cocoon and emerges as a beautiful butterfly in the final spread.
This book is a beloved library staple for young children.
