About the Author
Sean had no idea he would be a children's book writer - or did he? It was after a suggestion from the editor, and in thinking that he wanted to do a film about caterpillars and butterflies - since there don't seem to be any - that he decided to write this book. This book is to educate and inspire while fulfilling the mission of opening the consciousness of humanity through entertainment and science. http://facebook.com/theverylovingcaterpillar firstname.lastname@example.org

When looking at the illustrations and writing, they were done well. Colorful, inviting, and simple all describe the illustrations and are ones that I’m sure would grab many children’s attention. The writing is simple, concise, and is clear, which again would be inviting to any youngster.
The only two points that I find could be improved concerns the plot. Firstly, the stages of metamorphosis are not depicted fully. In the book, it shows the process as instant instead of the several days it actually takes. Also, even though, in the pictures you can see the chrysalis of the other caterpillars, the main portion of the picture shows that The Very Loving Caterpillar is flapping his/her wings and all of a sudden everyone else is in a chrysalis and are butterflies. I can easily see children thinking that magic is involved when caterpillars become butterflies.
Also, as a preference, it would have been nice if the main character, The Very Loving Caterpillar, had a name. I feel it would add to the story and make it more personal for children.
Overall, this was a cute, short read that I’m sure many children will enjoy.
