Ages 3 - 6



Praise For Clara Caterpillar

“A freshly minted fable…alliterative adventure that may be set in a garden, but is anything but garden-variety.”
-Kirkus Review

“An interesting combination of realistically rendered backgrounds and insect bodies with faces drawn in the style of Dr. Seuss.”
-School Library Journal

“Children will enjoy the well-told story and Cole’s large-scale, child-friendly artwork.”
-ALA Booklist
