Synopsis

Fletcher finds a caterpillar under a juicy green leaf. With the help of his friends, he introduces it to lots of games. But all it wants to do is munch.

When Caterpillar stops munching, Fletcher is worried but as spring turns to summer, something magical is about to happen! Join Fletcher and his friends as they discover a shimmering surprise in this joyous seasonal story.

Review by Stacey

One day Fletcher the fox comes across a caterpillar. He wants to be friends with the caterpillar and play lots of games but all his new friend wants to do is eat. Then one day he stops eating and looks tired. Fletcher is worried but his mum assures him that it is normal and something magical is about to happen to his friend.

Fletcher and the Caterpillar is a beautiful children’s picture book that is part of the ‘Fletcher’ series. It is the first book from this series that I have read though all the books are individual with the same returning character.

The pages are filled with adorable illustrations which look like they have been drawn in crayon. They emphasise what is happening in the story perfectly and capture the love that Fletcher has for his new friend and his worries when he stops munching.

Children will learn all about how caterpillars become butterflies and the process they go through which has been written in an easy-to-understand and follow manner and encased in a sweet story of friendship.

This is a lovely book that will appeal to children who love a happy ending and books featuring animals. It will also educate them without them realising.

Author Info

I grew up in London, close to Richmond Park – a beautiful deer park big enough to get lost in, where I got to know lots of the characters who have since popped up in my stories and poems.

I have always loved writing – I enjoy the sound and rhythm of words, and many of my poems for children have been published in anthologies. My One Week of Poems series of short ebooks covers Christmas, dinosaur, garden, space, football and spooky poems, which are gathered together in the One Week of Poems Box Set. The most recent books in the series are One Week of Seaside Poems and One Week of Pirate Poems.

When I had my children I started writing stories for picture books, and my first book, Fred and the Little Egg, was published in 2005. Since then I have written lots of stories about animals including rabbits, mules, dragons, hedgehogs, squirrels, mice and a kind-hearted but easily confused fox.

I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful illustrators, and my books have been published in many languages.
