Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a children's book written by Eric Carle in 1969 and has sold 30 million copies worldwide; it has been translated into at least 40 languages. It entertains and educates tackling the life cycle of a butterfly, counting and days of the week - there is also a subtle message that fruit is good for you and fatty/junk food makes you ill.

My ideas submission is for a set of models which allow you to tell the story while making the caterpillar grow. In total there are approx 1000 pieces used to make all of the models. The completed set of models would also make good display pieces in a child's room or nursery.

Click the pictures to see how the story unfolds retold in LEGO.

With enough support perhaps LEGO could become a part of "the very hungry caterpillar" story.
