Eric Carle Pair

A freak storm brings together a timid lamb and a free-spirited butterfly in The Lamb and the Butterfly, two creatures who quickly become friends in spite of leading very different lives. In Rooster’s Off to See the World, Rooster decides to explore the land outside his pen with a cohort of his animal friends. But when night falls and everyone gets cold and hungry, how can the group stay comfortable and happy? Two gloriously illustrated stories of animal friends in the big wide world, featuring Eric Carle’s colourful collage pictures. A must for Hungry Caterpillar fans!
