Synopsis[ edit ] One Sunday morning, a caterpillar hatches from an egg. He is known as the Very Hungry Caterpillar, who loves eating, and so he begins to look for some food. He eats through increasing quantities of fruit on the following 5 days. First it's one apple on Monday, then two pears on Tuesday, three plums on Wednesday, four strawberries on Thursday, and finally, five oranges on Friday. On Saturday, he eats an enormous amount of food. He eats 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. Then that night, he gets a stomachache from overeating from all of those 6 days; Monday through Saturday. But the next morning, it becomes Sunday again. The caterpillar recovered after he eats one green leaf. Finally, he's neither hungry nor little. The caterpillar spins a cocoon around himself. There, inside he sleeps in it for 2 weeks. Later, the caterpillar emerges as a butterfly with large, gorgeous, multi-coloured wings. Development[ edit ] In a sense the book was inspired by a hole punch : "One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called A Week with Willi the Worm.
