I always liked this shot because it reminds me of the wonderful illustrations of Eric Carles 1969 The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It has sold over 30 million copies. Although there was certainly no shortage of reading material in our house, I don't believe we ever had a copy of this book. Nor do I recall loving it or even reading it as a child. In fact I'm not entirely sure how or why it's in my head. Wikipedias plot synopsis:
Day 1: The main character is established. The hungry caterpillar eats through a single red apple.
Day 2: The caterpillar eats through 2 green pears.
Day 3: The caterpillar eats through 3 purple plums.
Day 4: The caterpillar eats through 4 red strawberries.
Day 5: The caterpillar eats through 5 whole oranges.
Day 6: On this day, the caterpillar devours its way through many, many different foods including; chocolate cake, ice-cream, a pickle, swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, a cherry pie, a single sausage, a cupcake and a whole slice of watermelon.
Day 7: The caterpillar eats through a single leaf.
Final chapter: The caterpillar turns into a chrysalis and
comes out as a beautiful butterfly. The hungry caterpillar is hungry no more - neither is it a caterpillar.
The film and TV rights were purchased in 2005 for £1 million. Not bad for 225 words.
