The Very Impatient Caterpillar

Ever wondered how caterpillars turn into butterflies? So does this wriggly fellow – and he CAN’T WAIT to see! “Hey!” says a little caterpillar to some big ones. “What are you guys doing?” The bigger caterpillars have a pretty cool answer: they’re going to metamorphise! That is, turn into butterflies. Wait – does that mean the little caterpillar gets to be a butterfly, too? Yup! Exactly right! So – WHEN? Well, not quite yet. He’s got to wait until the moment is right. But waiting is so BORING
