OK, we know it's no longer cool to coo over Google's logos anymore -- we're sure most of you would prefer a post on the series finale Battlestar Galactica, a show we simple can't watch for it contains neither Patti Stanger nor Candy Finnigan -- but today's we couldn't resist. In honor of the book's 40th anniversary, Google is giving it up for The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Next to The Divine Comedy and Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the most important piece of literature. It tells the tale of a starving caterpillar who, after consuming and consuming and consuming and consuming, turns into a beautiful butterfly.

A fantastic moral, an even better book.
