The caterpillar eats a lot of stuff and gets a stomachache and then builds a cocoon and become a beautiful butterfly by michael
This is a story about a caterpillar who eats something everyday of the week and he is still hungry each day until Saturday when he got a stomach ache He ate a leaf on Sunday and felt better he became a fat caterpillar who became a beautiful butterfly.
Hopper the elephant and Wilson the mouse wonder one day what exactly they might find at the end of the world. Determining that there’s a good chance of finding lemonade there, the two set out in a little boat with only a red balloon for company. Along the way they are caught up in a sudden squall and the two friends are separated. Wilson searches high and low for Hopper, until at last a friendly bird leads the two to one another. Continuing their journey (minus one red balloon) they find themselves back at their old dock. The end of the world is also the beginning. And for that the two of them could not be happier.
