A former US president is a big fan fo "the Very Hungry Caterpillar"

Did you know that one of the book's biggest fans is former US President George W. Bush?

When he visited primary schools on his campaign trail, nothing but the Caterpillar would do. "If teachers put out other books his advance team would clear them. It's The Very Hungry Caterpillar that he would read."

In 1999, when Pizza Hut ran a survey asking 50 US governors to name their favorite books from childhood, Bush opted for the Caterpillar. But when the book was published, Bush was actually nearly 23... It is true there is no age to enjoy a good children book!
