Now you can share the magic and find out all about caterpillars. Read and Wonder is an innovative and highly-acclaimed series of non-fiction picture books about the real world. They're written from a very personal viewpoint, mixing facts with feelings, encouraging children to think, feel and imagine as they learn.

"* "Full of facts and surprises... a distinguished array of artists and authors, and a (narrative) approach more serendipitous than encyclopaedic. Each book has an entirely original slant on its subject." The Guardian * "The best information books are so interesting that they make you want to find out more. The Read and Wonder books do just that." Margaret Meek, Emeritus Reader, Institute of Education, University of London * "Charming and very informative... good natural history." Books for Keeps
