The Very Hungry Caterpillar
It’s a busy afternoon for the puppet actors of Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They’ve got not one, not two, but three stories to tell. Each one springs from a book by renowned children’s author/illustrator Eric Carle, and centers around a different nature-themed protagonist. There’s the caterpillar and his cocoon-bursting transformation, the Mixed-Up Chameleon discovering his color-changing abilities, and the Little Cloud’s journey through the sky. Brought to life with puppets that evoke the rich color of Carle’s illustrations, The Very Hungry Caterpillar captures both the whimsical journeys and the science lessons of his stories.
