Welcome to The Caterpillar ‒ an art & literature magazine for children aged 7‒11 which we have been publishing since 2013.
The spring 2023 is our last, but we will continue with The Caterpillar Poetry Prize (judged this year by Michael Rosen), as well as The
Moth Poetry Prize, The Moth Short Story Prize and The Moth Nature Writing Prize
over at The Moth.
will also continue to sell back issues of The Caterpillar, including
some brilliant and affordable gift bundles of five issues for as little as €20! Ideal for young lovers of stories and art, and as aids for teachers to inspire, choc-a-bloc as they are with poetry, stories and stunning artwork.
Featured in 'Best Educational Magazines for children 2020' in Junior magazine, and The School Reading List

This time last year, we published Claire Mulligan's brilliant debut novel, The Hunt for David Berman. It's a marvellous read, if we do say so ourselves ‒ and an ideal summer read for children aged 8‒11. Check it out here!
