The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a staple of every tot's library collection. First published in 1969, the children’s book was written and illustrated by beloved author Eric Carle and has since sold more than 29 million copies. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this classic story, a brand new popup edition is about to be released. Carle's distinctive illustrations come to life in an even more spectacular way with this version than in his original innovative interactive book. Kids faces will light up discovering the caterpillar literally pop off the pages in three-dimensional form. Don't miss this text, which is available for preorder online or in bookstores March 10.
