Book Description

5 Mar 2009 The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Book 5)

A pop-up edition of Eric Carle's classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

In this brand new pop-up edition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, fans will experience the classic story in a completely new and interactive way as the intrepid caterpillar literally pops off the page, crawling along branches, munching through food and, finally, turning into an extraordinary butterfly. The classic story is told across seven beautifully engineered pop-up spreads with tabs to pull, dials to turn and flaps to lift. This new version will be treasured by bookworms of all ages.

Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children. Eric lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara. The Carles opened The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Pop-Up Book 11 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Of course nothing can surpass the original version, but this pop-up book comes a very close second. Most of the pop-up mechanisms are really unusual - I have never seen them used in any other books, and a couple of them were so funny or novel that I actually exclaimed in delight when I opened the page.

Far too good for kids, this book should be hidden away from them until they are old enough to treat it with the respect it deserves - e.g. when they are 40 years old themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute joy! 2 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a delight this book is - an old, well-loved favourite brought to life in a new and exciting way. A very special book for sharing across generations - but definitely not one to let little hands loose on!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book 25 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I remembered this story from my childhood and I completely love the addition of the pop up pages as does my son. It is very well made and a pleasure to see his face light up when the butterfly springs out at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 22 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not too complicated, but lovely pop ups, far better than the ones from years ago. Children need supervision if to keep it tip top, but lovely book and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good! 14 Feb 2014
By Rose H.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's just so wonderful the art is fantastic well done and reminds me of the original and brought nostalgia back!

my only small gripe is the hand-crafted functionality is abit weakly made in some area's like the Caterpillar walking across the stick broke :< and that part where you twist the foods up was a very weird mechanic....

But it's so good other then that :D

Buy this if you want to get surprised and blown away by 3D hand-crafted paper!
