very hungry caterpillar

Does anyone else find the binge subtext in The Very Hungry Caterpillar disturbing?

This quote from that wikipedia article is also quite disturbing:
In a 1999 survey conducted by Pizza Hut, George W. Bush listed the book among his favorite books from when he was growing up. This caused some controversy among media commentators since Bush was twenty-three when the book was first published.
