In the light of the moon, a little egg lay on a leaf.
One Sunday morning the warm sun come up and out of the egg come 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 pice of chocolate cake
One ice cream cone
One slice of swiss cheese
One slice of salami
One piece of cherry pie
And one slice of watermelon
That night he had a stomach ache.
The next day was Sunday again. The caterpillar ate through a nice green leaf.
And after that day he felt a bit 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 cocoon, around himself.
He stayed inside for more than two weeks.
Than he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, then he pushed his way out and …
He was a beautiful butterfly.
