A famous picture book described as “one of the greatest childhood classics of all time” was actually inspired by a simple hole punchYes incredibly it’s true The author remembers “One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called ‘A Week with Willi the Worm’”But his editor suggested that readers may not like a green worm very much and suggested a caterpillar instead The idea appealed to Eric Carle and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the result “I said 'Butterfly’ That’s how it began” But did it begin there or did it end? It’s rather like the chicken and the egg The story starts on a moonlit night with a tiny egg on a leaf On the next morning which is Sunday a tiny red faced caterpillar pops out of the egg He’s very hungry so he begins to look for some food Over the next five days we see him eating through and fruit There’s an apple on Monday two pears on Tuesday three plums on Wednesday four strawberries on Thursday and five oranges on Friday and then on Saturday he gobbles down an enormous feast of all sorts of silly food “On Saturday he ate through one piece of chocolate cake one ice cream cone one pickle one slice of Swiss cheese one slice of salami one lollipop one piece of cherry pie one sausage one cupcake and one slice of watermelon”Of course by the end of the day he feels very ill indeed with a stomach ache The next day though another Sunday he goes back to his sensible diet and eats through a large green leaf He’s now a very big fat caterpillar He spins a little house round himself called a cocoon and stays in there for a whole fortnight And after that is the magic which will entrance all young children as of course the illustration shows the caterpillar emerging transformed into a beautiful butterfly with large glorious multi coloured wingsThis is a wonderful book for very young children It introduces sound educational themes such as counting the days of the week foods although Saturday’s feast is a bit of a fantasy and the life cycle and transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly It is simple but accurate and has been endorsed by the “Royal Entomological Society”It has to be said though that its charm and novelty is its greatest asset The pages are differently shaped and have holes punched through to represent the caterpillar’s trail as he eats through all the various foods Although The Very Hungry Caterpillar was first published in 1969 apparently it has sold the euivalent of a copy per minute ever since 30 million copies worldwide It has won many awards for children’s literature and also a major graphic design award Eric Carle not only wrote it but also designed and illustrated the bookuite an achievement then for a book which was inspired by a simple hole punch

text ↠ The Very Hungry Caterpillar Õ Eric Carle

Ry hungry On Monday he ate through one apple; on Tuesday he ate through three plums and still he was hungry When full at last he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into Besides the promotion of drug use look at that thing's eyes and he obviously has the munchies I dislike that the author couldn't come up with some differing foodstuffs come on salami AND sausage? Chocolate cake AND a cupcake? And the line that says Now he wasn't hungry any and he wasn't a little caterpillar any drives me INSANE Where is the parallelism? I always want to read it as Now he wasn't hungry any and he wasn't little any In fact sometimes I DO read it wrong on purpose It also just leaves me a little empty at the end I keep waiting for his metamorphosis to propel him into some new situation Is he still hungry? and in his state as a caterpillar the author mentions he is VERY hungry Is he MORE hungry than other caterpillars? What factors created this ultra state wherein he persists? I really feel like the author left us uestioning so many factors that I didn't really ever feel a connection with the protagonist
