Description

We have all seen caterpillars, and we know they turn into beautiful butterflies. But, how do they do it? Here is a charming book written by Eric Carle about a very hungry caterpillar that keeps eating a lot. This board book is well-illustrated to show kids what exactly the hungry caterpillar ate. The caterpillar is hungry through the story until it makes a cocoon and goes to sleep. This book is a classic among picture books, and makes for a great gift for children.

Target let me down - 28 days ago, Verified purchaser
This is one of my favorite children's books and once I saw it on my friend's baby shower registry I added it to my cart. I am a loyal Target shopper and go there for almost everything I need, however, this order was highly disappointing. It was delivered late, dirty with brown smudges on the inside and outside, appeared used and even had some nicks on the side of the book. I am incredibly disappointed in Target's quality control. I'm glad I shipped this to myself first, instead of shipping it directly to the new mother. I'm embarrassed and appalled that Target would ship out such an obviously used book out. Target didn't even want the book back, they told me to dispose of it.

Poor quality control

Disappointed customer - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
After waiting for this book as part of a gift for a very special baby shower I was highly disappointed. First when it arrived it looked from the outside that it was used, only to look inside to find not only was it used, but signed with a dedication to whomever the book was previously bought for. Highly disappointed in the quality control that would send out such a obvious preowned signed book.
