Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-KA clever tongue-twisting rhyme that's sure to delight youngsters and challenge storytellers. "When the caterpillars went/ to their caterpillar beds,/ They all had caterpillows/ for their caterpillar heads." As expected, a joyous pillow fight ensues until "the big caterpillar'' comes in, puts a stop to the fray, and wisely solves the caterpillow problem. The colorful young creatures are utterly charming snuggled in their curled leaf beds before the naughty one begins the battle that sends a blizzard of carefully drawn feathers flying. Big caterpillar is gentle and sensible in the reprimand. An appealing bedtime selection.Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

Sam McBratney says he remembers the times as a child when "my friends and I were having so much fun that we knew it couldn't last. That's when mothers say, 'This is going to end in tears!'"

Jill Barton notes that she thought of caterpillars as drab until she learned more about them to illustrate THE CATERPILLOW FIGHT. "I was amazed at all the wonderful colors they come in."
