The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book that features a caterpillar who eats a variety of foods before emerging as a beautiful butterfly. It is the story of a baby caterpillar that has a never-ending appetite for food since his birth. He begins by eating a piece of fruit on the first day and gradually goes up to five pieces a day. He then decides to try out newer foods like Swiss cheese, salami, cherry pie, chocolate cake and so on. Not surprisingly, he soon nauseates himself by overeating. He spins a cocoon around him after recovering and finally emerges out of it as a beautiful butterfly with bright, large and gorgeous multi-coloured wings after two weeks.
