The Very Hungry Caterpillar

There are some book titles that will instantly transport me back to childhood, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is certainly one of those.
I never had a copy of this book as a child, but it was always one of those books that would be in and around the school classroom.



So when I stumbled across this copy for 25p my heart skipped a beat. The hardback copy, with all the cut out holes (where the caterpillars been of course) was simply meant to be.

  7. I used to adore this book. Am sure I had this hardback copy, I'd imagine it's probably up in the attic somewhere! Another great children's book find - well done!
