The Very Hungry Caterpillar


#1

I’ve stolen this from Twitter, but it’s a good question - is that a nose or a mouth on his face?

It’s their mouth. The book is exclusively about them eating so a mouth is a visual requirement.


#3

Got some caterpillars in a jam jar at home as I rescued them after destroying their home. They shit loads.


#4

Caterpillars don’t have a nose, obviously.


#5

Hmmm


#6

Yeah I’ll do a book about a dog that smells and he will ll not have a nose

#8

Looking forward to the BBC website absolute fucking non-story about this.


#9

Eric Carle has made shitloads out of fuck all here hasn’t he?


#10

This book is a joy and works brilliantly with small people. I will not hear a bad word about it.


#11

Probably bunged that fucker a good £20-25


#12

Reckon at least a tenner of that will have gone to his sister, Christa.


#13

The shops and publishers probably take a cut too, dunno.


#14

Mouth is the logical answer, but the positioning is all wrong.

Bit fucking small for a supposedly Very Hungry Caterpillar too. Unless his tiny mouth is the reason he’s so hungry?


#15

I think it’s his arsehole. That’s how a caterpillar’s body works.


#16

My son loves it - we had the version with the little finger puppet in it, which was really cool, but he ate most of it, the savage!


#17

Such a great book. Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? is a sensation too.

The one about the ladybird that wants to chin everyone is weird though.


#18

How in the actual fuck have ONE THIRD of people voted “Nose”??? The book isn’t called “The Caterpillar with the Sensitive Olfactory System”. Jesus.


#19

thought nose from that pic but when i google for others i can only see it as a mouth


#20

More concerned about its arsehole in that pic TBH
