The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a children's classic that tells the story of a caterpillar as it grows into a beautiful butterfly. It also provides interactive fun to children by teaching them about the days of the week, counting, good nutrition and a lot more through its die-cut pages and attractive pictures.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book that features a caterpillar who eats a variety of foods before emerging as a beautiful butterfly. It is the story of a baby caterpillar that has a never-ending appetite for food since his birth. He begins by eating a piece of fruit on the first day and gradually goes up to five pieces a day. He then decides to try out newer foods like Swiss cheese, salami, cherry pie, chocolate cake and so on. Not surprisingly, he soon nauseates himself by overeating. He spins a cocoon around him after recovering and finally emerges out of it as a beautiful butterfly with bright, large and gorgeous multi-coloured wings after two weeks.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar uses the author's signature style of collage illustrations, pages that have “eaten” holes and simple text that introduces the reader to a butterfly's life stages and also the concepts of counting, the days of the week and different kinds of food.
