Sweets. Fruits. Peepholes. A magical surprise. A classic interactive treat for little ones. Hey, smallies! Don’t miss this chance to get your paws on Eric Carle’s cutaway classic. We’ve never met a little person who wasn’t hungry for this book. Poke your fingers into the peepholes as you follow a very hungry caterpillar. He gobbles up one red apple, two green pears and three purple plums. But he’s still hungry! He snacks on chocolate cake, ice cream, Swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, a cherry pie, a sausage and a cupcake. Will his fat little tummy ever be full?
