|Welcome to The Caterpillar ‒ an art & literature magazine for children aged 7‒11 which we have been publishing since 2013.
The spring 2023 was 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 mothership, The Moth.
Why not purchase a copy of The Caterpillar for as little as €5? Or how about a brilliant and affordable gift bundle 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
