This is the story of a very hungry caterpillar. The caterpillar starts his life as an egg settled on a leaf in the  moonlight. As the sun arose on the begining of the next day, his journey as a caterpillar began! The first thing he noticed, was his tummy growling.
He was so hungry, so he began to look for food. He ate through an apple, two pears, three plums, four strawberries,five oranges, and everything from chocolate cake to watermeon! He ate so much, but he was still hungry. It seemed as though he would never get enough food into his belly!
Finally, after eating through a green leaf,  he was full! After that, he realized he was not so little anymore. He was now a big fat caterpiller! Becoming tired, he built himself a cocoon and went to sleep. Then, after a good rest, he made his way out of his cacoon and discovered that he had become a beautiful butterfly!
