New Fuse 8 n’ Kate Episode: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

veryhungrycaterpillarOh. We’re churning them out now. We’ve got a rhythm. We’ve got a beat. And now we’re going to start rip-roaring through our books.  This week’s podcast episode (found here or on iTunes under “Kate n’ Fuse 8”) was a good one too. I decided to finally crack one of the Top Ten books that showed up in my Top 100 Picture Books Poll in the hopes of luring Kate into a conflict. I think The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is a perfect 10 of a picture book. Does she agree?  All that I can say for certain is that she definitely tries to poison me. If you’ve ever seen what Gerald the Elephant did when he had to try slop in I Really Like Slop by Mo Willems, you’ll know what to expect from this episode.


Please substitute “slop” for “Malort”
