The Very Hungry Caterpillar

  • Wed 31 May - Sun 04 Jun

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author / illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969 selling more than 41 million copies worldwide.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colourful hand painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself. 

Now the timeless classic makes its way off the page and onto the stage.  Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show’ features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories: The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
