One day Ezra hears a 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, but nothing seems to work… What can she do to make the cranky caterpillar change his tune?
This acclaimed debut from illustrator Richard Graham is an artist-inspired celebration of the magical colours of music. Children will identify with the caterpillar’s struggle in trying to articulate his emotions, and will delight in the inventive band of friends who succeed in cheering him up.
