School Library Journal - 02/01/2019 PreS-Gr 1–When an inquisitive caterpillar sees a bunch of his friends climb up a tree, he questions their unusual behavior. They explain that it is time to "metamorphosize." Using dialogue, Burach concisely walks readers through the metamorphosis process, following a repeating question and answer formula. At each stage, the clueless caterpillar asks the others what is going on, pretends to have known all along with a "Right. Right," and then proceeds to demonstrate a total lack of patience. Unsurprisingly, his first attempt ends in failure, thus causing the impetus for an inner change, which brings about the outer one. Burach's dialogue is spot-on, and if told by an expressive storyteller, should produce a lot of laughter. His style will delight fans of Mo Willems's "Pigeon" series. Thanks to the humorous designs and the bold exclamatory text, the book would make an excellent candidate for read-alouds. VERDICT An absolutely charming and educational tale about metamorphosis and patience that is ideal for school and library storytimes.—Rachel Forbes, Oakville Public Library, Ont. - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
