About The Book The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book for children, which was published for the very first time in the year 1969. The book focuses on the life of a caterpillar that is extremely hungry. This caterpillar devours many different food-items before it pupates. After this, the caterpillar metamorphoses, becoming a beautiful butterfly. In this beautifully illustrated book, the author makes use of collage illustrations, along with the illustrations of eaten holes in every page. The text has been kept extremely simple, since the book targets very young readers. The book also employs the use of educational themes, which include counting the days that are in one week, naming food items, stating the life-stages of a butterfly and other similar themes. Many other books and educational tools have been introduced by other authors, keeping these concepts in mind. It is important to highlight that the author has mentioned the caterpillar's diet to be a fictional one, rather than what is conventionally eaten by a caterpillar. The book is scientific in its themes as well. It familiarizes its readers with concepts such as Lepidoptera, with reference to the life stages of a butterfly. The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been published by Penguin UK, in the year 2003 and is available in paperback. Key Features The metamorphosis process as highlighted here, has been endorsed by the Royal Entomological Society. The author has introduced the young readers to a variety of educational topics.
