The kid's absolutly love Jonathan the "Greedy" caterpillar.
Jonathan is amusing to look at and is illustrated on a sturdy 42x28cm plastic board. His favorite playground is a large apple tree, which is illustrated on the other side of the board. You show the board, quite straightforwardly and without any special tricks, from the front and back, even your hands seem to be empty.
Jonathan seems to be very hungry today, because a big hole has been eaten out of the board. Before the caturpillar chews away any more, the children help conjure up Jonathan's favorite meal with a magic spell.
You put your empty hand thropugh through the hole in the board - and actually have a big, juicy apple in your hand which has come from nowhere.
The caterpillar wants to keep the apple for late. Therefore, you throw the apple back into the hole- and it disappears like magic. You show the board and you hands empty again!
The game is repeated several times to the delight of the children. Sooner or later the magician says it would be nice if he also had an apple as they look so tasty. The children help with a loud magic spell. But it seems that everyone has forgotten about Jonathan the greedy caterpilar.
Instead of the apple, the climax is the appearance of an apple core so that the effect ends on a surprising and funny note!!!
