A twist on an old story as Caterpillar longs to fly but can't as he doesn't have wings. When he meets a butterfly she smiles a secret smile, for she knows it won't be long before Caterpillar is able to flutter away.
Sheridan Cain was born in London where she also went to school. She now lives in the east of England. She is an avid gardener and the many small creatures who visit her garden are an inspiration for her children's books. Jack Tickle likes painting in acrylic because when he spills coffee and food on his pictures, he can wipe them clean again! He likes to eat gingerbread men and chocolate biscuits while he paints and he listens to loud guitar music or Radio 4. Mr Tickle lives in South West England with his family and a large biscuit barrel.

Yet one more of S Cain's educational tales of a creature's natural change. Again, the colourful and cute illustrations capture a child's attention like magic as Caterpillar goes through the first half of his life, wishing he could fly. With the help of S Cain, Jack Tickle and Mother Nature, the ending is of course a happy one that left both my daughter and I smiling.
I got this book for my 16 month old and although the pictures and story are lovely, little fingers have trouble pressing the pads on the book for the sounds (even mum had trouble pressing them!). It's still a nice book though and the sounds that accompany the pictures make it more entertaining and keep the attention of a toddler that usually can't sit still for a minute! My three year old likes it too so it's good for all toddling ages.
