AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'There was once a caterpillar who lived all alone. Everything around Caterpillar seemed large and strange, and she felt frightened of the world. Trapped and lonely in a prison of her own making, Caterpillar is crippled by her fears. Unless she can find the strength to overcome them, she will never learn to truly live.' (Source: Fremantle Press website)
