  • In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.

  • One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and - pop! - out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.

  • He started to look for some food.

  • On Monday he ate through one apple. But he was still hungry.

  • On Tuesday he ate through two pears, but he was still hungry.

  • On Wednesday he ate through three plums, but he was still hungry.

  • On Thursday he ate through four strawberries, but he was still hungry.

  • On Friday he ate through five oranges, but he was still hungry.

  • On Saturday he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami,

  • one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon.

  • That night he had a stomachache.

  • The next day was Sunday again.

  • The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf,

  • and after that he felt much better.

  • Now he wasn't hungry any more -- and he wasn't a little caterpillar any more. He was a big, fat caterpillar.

  • He built a small house, called a cocoon, around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks.

  • Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and...

  • He was a beautiful butterfly!

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.
