Caldecott Honor Book * New York Times Best Illustrated Book

This favorite classic picture book introduces children to a winning, winsome inchworm who can measure anything under the sun, from a robin's tail to a toucan's beak. When a hungry nightingale threatens to eat him for breakfast unless he can measure her song, the inchworm will have to cleverly solve the dilemma. This is a whimsical and sweet picture book that asks, "Can a song be measured?"

"The lovely colors, the sharp definition of cutouts against white space, the rhythm of the composition, and the simplicity of the whole make a handsome and appropriate book to give pleasure to little children and their elders." --The Horn Book
