"There were caterpillow thumps and caterpillow whacks on caterpillar tummies and on caterpillar backs."

All the little caterpillars have gone to bed, with their caterpillows for their little heads. But in the middle of the night, one caterpillar decides to wake all the others for a thumping, whumping caterpillow fight! With fresh, exuberant illustrations by Jill Barton, Sam McBratney's delightfully tongue-tangling tale will have lap-sitters giggling and wiggling and ready for a romp.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 3^-7. Professional comedians tell us that some things are inherently humorous--pigs, for example. McBratney adds caterpillars to the "funny" list with this playful picture book: "One naughty caterpillar, / in the middle of the night, / Woke the other caterpillars / for a caterpillow fight." The simple setup, the catchy rhyme, the wordplay, and the ultimate resolution will be greatly appealing to little ones, and Barton's sweetly comical illustrations, crowded with colorful caterpillars are a perfect match. A bedtime backdrop but an anytime read. --Stephanie Zvirin"
