The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Australian Feast
12pp., board book., RRP $A16.99
We all know of The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s liking for food and the foods on the menu of his first feast, but what would be on the table if he came to an Australian feast? Particularly one designed for a picnic on the beach?
Very young Australian fans of the VHC will delight in this exclusive release written just for them as they lift the flaps on iconic treats searching for their little hero. Interactive, a familiar character, vivid illustrations in Carle’s recognisable style and rhyming text make this a terrific addition to this collection as young readers discover another adventure. Is their favourite food mentioned? What would be in their beach picnic basket? (And who’s the ladybird? Could that be another story from the master storyteller?)
