A lighthearted parody of Eric Carle's much-loved classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Hungry Pregnant Lady tackles the mysteries faced by pregnant women everywhere namely, how can I have so little space for my stomach and yet be hungry all the time? And is it better to try unsuccessfully to sleep, or just give in and have another snack? Pairing playful text with bright, colorful images, The Very Hungry Pregnant Lady is both a send-up and a celebration of this strange, ridiculous, and exciting time in the lives of all mothers-to-be.
