One day a hungry robin saw an inchworm, green as an emerald, sitting on a twig. (from the first line)
This was the first of four Caldecott Honor Books by Lionni, first published in 1960. The bold graphics and beautiful cutout paper collages of colorful birds, foliage, and the clever green inch worm are as fresh as ever, and should appeal to a whole new audience in this accessible board book format. Full color.
From the Publisher:
A small green inchworm is proud of his skill at measuring anything—a robin’s tail, a flamingo’s neck, a toucan’s beak. Then one day a nightingale threatens to eat him if he cannot measure his song. Children will enjoy the clever inchworm’s solution and delight in finding the tiny hero on every page.

Every inch the classic, this was the first of Lionni’s books to win the Caldecott Honor.


From the Hardcover edition.
Author Bio
Leo Lionni
Although Leo Lionni is a popular author and illustrator of picture books, many people are surprised to find that he did not write his first book until he was a grandfather. Lionni and his family lived in many different places during his childhood including Brussels, Philadelphia, and Genoa. He attended the University of Zurich and married Nora Maffi. In 1939 he, his wife, and their two children moved to Philadelphia where Lionni worked for an advertising agency and was also the head of the graphics design department of the Parsons School of Design. In 1959, at age 50, he returned to Italy. His first picture book, LITTLE BLUE AND LITTLE YELLOW was originally created as a story to amuse his grandchildren during a tedious train ride. SWIMMY, one of Lionni's personal favorites, was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1964.
