Product Description

From Amazon

"In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf." So begins Eric Carle's modern classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. More than 12 million copies of this book have been sold in its original, full-sized edition, and the beloved tale of science and gluttony has been translated into 20 languages. This five-by-four-inch miniature edition is truly tiny, with tiny type, but it is a nice size for small hands to hold and flip through the pictures. Despite its diminished state, the book is complete in every detail, following the ravenous caterpillar's path as he eats his way through one apple (and the pages of the book itself) on Monday, two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday, and so on, through cherry pie and sausage--until he is really fat and has a stomachache. And no doubt you know what happens next! Kids love butterfly metamorphosis stories, and this popular favorite teaches counting and the days of the week, too. A fun gift package for caterpillar fans. (Baby to preschool) --Karin Snelson

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, smaller than what I was expecting Feb. 11 2013
By Jiye Li
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is no doubt a great book. My child loves the French version, which is as big as a laptop. I ordered the English one for a friend, but when I received it, the book was only half as big as the French one. Just pay attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic book. smaller than I expected June 5 2014
Format:Board book
You can't go wring with this story. It has been and will continue to be loved by kids and adults. The only issues I have with this book is that it was smaller than I expected. Wish it was bigger.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but didn't realize the size May 5 2014
By JB Reid
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Great gift and classic book for all children, but I was intending on purchasing the large version and nowhere did I find the dimensions or realize this was a mini size. On the other hand it is great for travel and again a great book.

2.0 out of 5 stars was sent only the small book instead of the large board book
I'm disappointed that I received only the small version of this board when it was the same cost as the larger Brown Bear Brown Bear Book. Why was I sent only the small version?

2.0 out of 5 stars It's ok FAR TOO SMALL
This book is the mini size. Spend the extra 10 somewhere else and get the big version. My 9 month old can't even read it properly and the pages are too small for her. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Great read but poorly made board book
I ordered this book, and as much as it's a great story, my book arrived damaged. Not too pleased with this specific product.
