The Very Hungry Caterpillar Sushi T Shirt from Red Bubble

by on January 22, 2012

This is obviously a parody of the very popular children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle. In that book, the Caterpillar eats through a lot greenery, and then tries to eat a lollipop, pie, sausage, muffin and watermelon and gets sick, so he goes back to eating leaves and eventually turns into a butterfly.

On this The Very Hungry Caterpillar Sushi T Shirt it looks like the little dude was looking to shake things up with his diet, and instead of leaves, he went for some sushi rolls.  Who can blame him? Sushi is good stuff. Hopefully, it doesn’t retard his metamorphosis into a butterfly because no one wants to be stuck in caterpillar mode forever. He may just be sick for a few days, learn a lesson, get back to his natural diet, a little wiser and a couple of ounces fatter.

I love that the holes the caterpillar makes are so round, like paper punches, exactly like in the book, which truly is a classic. Great colors and an intriguing story for the young ones. I should know my mom made me babysit some 3 and 4-year-olds kids once and they made me read that book to them

Zomboy designed this tee and made it available on Red Bubble for your exquisite enjoyment.
