Caterpillar Cake, Matt Goodfellow, Illustrated by Krina Patel-Sage, Otter-Barry Books.

This is a hardback poetry book for very young people filled with Matt’s trademark poems, which are always delicious to read aloud.

It’s not everyone who can write with such quality for small readers – Caterpillar cake is an engaging recipe whipped with warmth and wonder, and topped with poetry icing.

Here’s a sample – this poem is a two page spread, but I’ve had to cut it in half!

Beautifully illustrated by Krina Patel-Sage, this is a first poetry book to be enjoyed by parents and children alike.

Very much recommended, 5 stars.
