The modern-day classic children's picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, which has been loved by many generations of children worldwide, is now translated into te reo Māori!


With the same beautiful illustrations and dye-cut pages as the original book, the reo Māori translation Te Anuhe Tino Hiakai retains the humour and quirky character of the little caterpillar and simplicity of the story.
