The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Carle, Eric

New York: Philomel Books, 1994 Illustrated by Carle. 25th Anniversary edition. Publisher's pictorial silver boards, with an illustration of the very hungry caterpillar to the front board, illustration of the caterpillar eating through a leaf on the rear board, lettered in black, multicolored polka-dotted endpapers; in the publisher's acetate dust jacket with "25" to the panels in white. Book near fine, with some light wear and minor rubbing to the extremities, a few minor scuffs to the boards, else fine; dust jacket, with closed tear to the front panel, heavy creasing to the front panel, and a few scuffs. Overall, a very good and clean copy. Originally published in 1969, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a beloved children's book that follows one ravenous caterpillar's journey as he eats his way through the days of the week and matures from a new-born caterpillar into a full-grown butterfly. An educational as well as entertaining book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is lauded for teaching its young readers the days of the week and emphasizes the importance of good nutrition. The text is illustrated in Carle's signature style: a collage of hand-painted paper cut into various shapes to form unique and colorful images. Adding to the layered feel, the pages are of various lengths and often show cut-out holes to designate where the caterpillar has "eaten" his way through. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is Carle's third and most popular work.. Illus. by Carle, Eric. Hard Cover. Very Good.
