Inspired by sweets and treats, BookPal participated in Lakeshore Towers 19th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. It is no surprise that we chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar children’s book as our inspiration.
Eric Carle is best known for his unique picture books with engaging illustrations designed for young children. Eric Carle is the author of the classic children titles such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and The Grouchy Ladybug. His most famous work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has been read by millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 50 different languages. Just two years ago, The Very Hungry Caterpillar celebrated its 40th Anniversary. As I am sure most of you remember, this book is about a tiny green caterpillar that eats his way though the book until he transforms into a beautiful butterfly.
For our pumpkin, we combined the classic themes of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and still kept our festive flare. We stuck to the Halloween theme by using small pumpkins to comprise all of the elements in our entry including the body of the caterpillar. BookPal’s take on The Very Hungry Caterpillar was awarded 1st place in the Lakeshore Towers 19th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!
BookPal offers all of the versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar available as well as all of the other Eric Carle book sets.
