The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar


In the light of
the stars,
a little tomb lay
in drowned R’lyeh

On Sunday morning, the stars came almost right, and—boom!—out of the crypt
came a big and very hungry cthulhupillar.

An artist and lifelong fan of Lovecraftian literature, Ben Mund retells the story of Cthulhu in a humorous and horrific take of classic children’s literature. Read and discover just what the hungry little cthulhupillar devours in its quest to sate its ravenous appetite, and learn the fate of the world when it finally eats its fill.

The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar features full-color illustrations by Ben Mund and a bonus short story by Jamie Chambers, and will call back fond memories of childhood along with the maddening knowledge of our cosmic insignificance and forthcoming doom. This book is not intended for young children.

This book is not authorized by or affiliated with Eric Carle or Penguin Group USA.

This product has been updated with rich, full-page illustrations, a bonus story by Jamie Chambers, and Mythos activity pages!

I li-la-love it. Grew up with the very hungry Caterpillar and I think, this adaptation is quite heartwarming, funny and creative. But it really is no children's book - not because it's too scary in itself but because I think to really enjoy - a [...]

If you are a mother of a certain age (or for that matter, grew up in the past 16 years or so), you may have fond memories of a children's book called The Very Hungry Caterpillar... ... well, just imagine the same gentle yet vivid charm, and add [...]

Great little book, both art and story are great. It doesn't dislay all that well on the small screen of a smart phone so make sure to read it on a larger screen. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
