Eric Carle - Illustrator

When Eric Carle was growing up, he always knew he wanted to make pictures. But he didn't think about an illustrator until author Bill Martin Jr. asked Eric to illustrate Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Now forty years later, he is one of the most beloved children's book author/illustrator of the 20th century. From Will You Be My Friedn? to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric's colorful collage illustrations continue to entertain children around the world.
