Is it a worm? Is it a snake? No! It’s a caterpillar . . .

. . .  and it’s on its way to one of the most magical transformations in the insect world, from a crawling digestive tube to a fluttering glasswing, luna moth, or monarch on its journey across thousands-of-miles. In the latest addition to KEVIN MCCLOSKEY’s beloved Giggle and Learn series, young readers will explore how caterpillars morph into the many different moths and butterflies that help pollinate our world. Growing up is scary, but caterpillars can lead the way!

"A multilayered, richly illustrated examination of a familiar crawling creature, yielding new pleasures and perspectives with each turn of the page."School Library Journal

"A small, snug, humorous work that uses comic-book conventions to get its nonfiction ideas across." —WSJ

"[McCloskey's] endearing cartoon images of various kinds of caterpillars will give young readers good cause to join two budding investigators [...] in learning about eggs, instars (or stages), anatomy, cocoons, and chrysalises on the way to witnessing in sequential views a set of marvelous transformations."—Kirkus Reviews

"[...] truly meets the goal of "giggle and learn." Colorful, clear illustrations, often labeled, accompany dialogue and text to present readers with some fascinating facts [...] Superior in style, liveliness, integrity and format." — Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's and Young Adult Literature
