The book is maybe 1inch by 1inch. Not only misled by “acceptable” but totally misleading with an itty bitty book!

Not Acceptable

I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but the condition this book arrived in was awful. Its dirty, torn, missing pages.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

My great-grandson loved the Very Hungry Caterpillar. He loved the "holes" in the book as the caterpillar ate his way to show the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly.

Board book was in wonderful condition

This is a favorite in our house. The condition of the book was even better than the description. I’m very pleased.

Great condition!

This is my first time ordering from here so I didnt know what to expect. When I received this book, it was in awesome condition! No rips, no water damage, no coloring on the pages. I'm very happy with this purchase.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Book and Memory Game (The World of Eric Carle)

Even my older (2nd grade) students love this version of the book. It has a game inside. They can't get enough of it.

Great book!!!!!! My Son loves it!!!!

This spanish version is very good, I even like it better than the english one. My 18 months old son absolutely loves this book and enjoys putting his fingers in the holes that are inside. Really good book!!!!

Munch, munch, munch!

This book is great in that it not only teaches the life cycle of a butterfly, counting to 5, the names of the days of the week, and about different types of food. The actual holes in the book create an intrigue and imagination that a caterpillar really munched his way through. The easy-to-read worlds makes good teaching tool for young children.


Eric Carle is the favorite author for me and my sister. His illustrations are lovely and just perfect for the stories. We enjoy reading his books again and again. It is a real joy for us. This is very simple reading about a caterpillar who eats throughout the whole week. We love the brightly colored pictures on each page and repetitive phrases in this book. This book belongs to each household. We also like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and Why Some Cats are Rascals ( Book 3)

Always great

As an elementary school Spanish teacher this book is a lifesaver. While I found some of the translations slightly unusual it is a great way to use childrens literature to teach many subjects in Spanish. Since it is a favorite of all children and so well known the book is easily understood and can teach number, colors, days of the week, and the life cycle of a caterpillar.

All you need to make you look smart (not that you’re not already)

This year was not short of standout literary highlights. One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century; To Kill a Mockingbird got "sequelled" with the acclaimed Go Set a Watchman, replete with a less prosaic Atticus Finch. Then, as the year progressed, two acclaimed authors reached out to us from beyond the grave, via their publishing houses. Dr. Seuss added to his body of two acclaimed authors reached out to us from beyond the grave, work when What Pet Should I Get, was unearthed in the office of the late author, complete with illustrations. Then along came The Girl in the Spider's Web, a further addition to the Millennium series which is a rare feat, since the author, Stieg Larsson died of a heart attack in 2004. This "quartet-maker" is very successfully channelled (or dare I say ghost written) by David Largercranz.

Many memories will be shared over a good book, starting with the time-honored tradition of the bed-time story. Who here remembers begging their parents to read just one more book? "I promise I will go right to bed after the next one;" "I'm not tired yet;" "But I really like both of the books. I don't want to choose." Do any of these sound familiar?
