The Disappearing Caterpillar is a beautiful story with Pipsie and her turtle Alfred. When they meet Frannie the caterpillar they make a new friend but when he suddenly disappears Pipsie uses her detective skills to work out what has happened.
This is a gorgeous story that makes learning about the life cycle of a butterfly lots of fun. Pipsie is a great character for the children to see as her inquisitive nature makes the children intrigued to know what has happened to the caterpillar. I love the character of Alfred as he is supportive for Pipsie but always has a funny comment and I'm sure he's thinking what we all would be.
The illustrations are so pretty and interesting to look at with them full of details and constantly changing as Pipsie sets off on her adventure. We particularly liked the ending and the beautiful picture, I won't spoil it but you could probably guess!
The facts at the end of the book are lovely to help children understand out of the context of the story a bit more about the life cycle of a butterfly. This is a brilliant story that is fun to read and good to learn from, well worth a read.
