Advert: The Cranky Caterpillar

One day Ezra hears a gloomy blue tune coming from the piano. To her surprise, it’s a caterpillar making the sound ... a cranky caterpillar. 

Ezra tries to cheer him up with some fresh air, cakes, and new hats, but nothing seems to work... What can Ezra do to help the cranky caterpillar change his tune? 

Taking inspiration from Wassily Kandinsky’s colour synesthesia, children are shown the magical colours of music, in this splendidly illustrated book with a very distinct style. Children will identify with the struggle the caterpillar goes through, in trying to articulate his emotions, and will delight in the inventive band of friends that succeed in cheering him up.

'The Cranky Caterpillar', Thames and Hudson publication date September 2017.

'Absolutely Astonishing. Astounding piece of work'  Raymond Briggs, creator of 'The Snowman'

This illustrated picture book covers themes of kindness, friendship and music. There are also a week of literacy and science lessons based around 'The Cranky Caterpillar', available to download on the teacher education syllabus website here.
