Sheridan Cain lives in London with her husband. She is the author of a number of books for children, including Little Turtle And The Song Of The Sea with Little Tiger Press. Jack Tickle lives in Dorset with his wife and child. He is the illustrator of the vibrant, popular titles Yummy Yummy, Food For My Tummy!, The Very Lazy Ladybird and The Very Sleepy Sloth.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Admiring the airborne abilities of Bumblebee, Sparrow, and Butterfly, Caterpillar longs for wings of his own. "Too big to fly," the insect sadly spends his days eating and wishing. Like that other hungry caterpillar, Cain's main character crunches and munches through the book, and then falls asleep to awaken blissfully transformed into a butterfly. Much like his illustrations for Isobel Finn's The Very Lazy Ladybug (Tiger Tales, 2001), Tickle's cartoon artwork features bright colors and large, bold images. The energetic pages are filled with sweet-faced, stylized creatures. Different fonts are used to reflect the action of the story. Attentive listeners may note that Sparrow would be more likely to eat Caterpillar than encourage him, yet most young children will not notice this less-than-realistic detail. Although this tale is not highly original, Cain's simple language and Tickle's engaging illustrations make it acceptable for sharing in a group or individually.
