The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favourites*
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
After much demand, that little caterpillar is returning, along with an assortment of favourite puppet characters. The triple-bill includes the wonderful story of THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR's metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly; the fanciful account of LITTLE CLOUD's travels through the sky, and the MIXED-UP CHAMELEON's discovery of his own unique nature. The whimsical tales have enchanted several generations, and Mermaid's acclaimed stage adaptation teaches as well as entertains.
