Today: We finish up the week with Eric Carle's insatiable The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Have you ever been so hungry that you spent an entire week's worth of days eating? No? Okay, I'll try again: have you ever read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle?
His classic children's story about a caterpillar who becomes a butterfly ends with a day of eating that would rival any Big Feast:
On Saturday, he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon
That night he had a stomach ache.
I'm sure we can all relate to that last part.
