The Very Hungry Caterpillar by author/illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide. Carle’s well-known books have captivated readers with his iconic colorful hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories. His work has introduced generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself.

Witness these timeless classics come to life during an interactive story time at The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show Experience.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show Experience features a variety of puppets, faithfully adapting three of Eric Carle’s stories, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, and of course, the star of the event – The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
