The Very Horny Caterpillar


p8

There’s a new story on the writing page!

Well, not quite a new story. It’s a parody, defined by the sorcerers at Wikipedia as a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work. The original work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, follows a newly hatched caterpillar filled with a powerful hunger. He consumes various foodstuffs until he gains the bulk necessary to become a beautiful butterfly. It’s a classic, beloved by millions.

My version is just like that except the caterpillar craves… something else.

Best of all, The Very Horny Caterpillar is a collaborative work. My best friend and roommate, Joaquin Martinez provided the illustrations. They make what began as a silly, slightly stoned conversation among friends into an actual work of art.

I’m so happy to share The Very Horny Caterpillar with you!

  1. It made me laugh. And I know all the words. Congrats. I am too lazy to find my WordPress password so am not publically commenting until I get to the laptop. It’s a Friday. Love you.

  2. Hi Kate. Your collaborative effort presented a different theory. Have been planting lots of pollinators flowers for caterpillars in Sd and my Montana wildflowers. Hope the two of you had fun creating it.
