The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Book Fairies at Kew Gardens

The Very Hungry Caterpillar explores the new attraction at Kew Gardens!

The Book Fairies are celebrating an absolute classic today! We are marking the activity at Kew Gardens around The Very Hungry Caterpillar by hiding copies of Eric Carle’s famous book…

“In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf…”

Book fairies have enjoyed sharing copies of a classic today around the UK!

About the event at Kew:

Join The Very Hungry Caterpillar this Easter and follow Kew’s enchanting trail through the Gardens.

Embark on a transformational journey to becoming a beautiful butterfly, based on Eric Carleā€™s much-loved book, and wind through sculptures of juicy fruits and a cosy chrysalis along the way.

Digest facts about the wonder of nature and the close connections between plant and insect life on Earth.

You can also explore the seasonal plants in the Gardens, with tulips, bluebells, magnolias, and cherry blossom all bursting to life!
