Down on the rainforest floor, little hungry Grub can sense that something momentous is about to happen which will cause his body to change.
Alongside beautiful illustrations depicting both the rainforest floor and its exotic flora and fauna, this story also contains the gentle rhythm of line repetition to build up anticipation in the reader.
So he ate and he ate, and he grew and he grew…
What will happen to Grub?
The book concludes with five fabulous facts about Grub‘s transformation, and endpapers depicting the transformed insects from those of the front endpapers, which round out the story very nicely indeed.
A beautifully presented work from the winning illustrator of the 2021 Environment Award for Children’s Literature.
