About the Book

The Very Hungry Caterpillar meets Giraffes Can’t Dance in this sweet coming of age story about finding one’s courage.

All Henri the Caterpillar has is a dream. It’s an amazing, incredible, impossible dream.  And to chase it, Henri will have to leave the safety of his garden and embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Written and illustrated by the award-winning creator of A Bed for Bear, Clive McFarland, Caterpillar Dreams is the inspiring story of what can happen when you dare to believe in yourself.
