Author Info
Eric Carle
American-born Eric Carle and his German-born parents moved to Germany in 1935. The transition from life in American to life in Germany was not an easy one for Carle to make. His school days were unpleasant, except for the encouragement he received in his art classes. In 1952, at age 22, Carle returned to the United States. He soon began working for the New York Times and remained there until he was drafted into the U.S. Army, which sent him back to Germany. After his discharge he returned to the U.S., this time with a wife, Dorothy. He illustrated his first book for children, Bill Martin's BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? in 1967. Carle is best known for his "Very" series, which he writes and illustrates. The series began in 1969 with THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and apparently concludes with 1995's THE VERY LONELY FIREFLY. In 2003 he was honored by the American Library Association with their Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which recognizes creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature.
