The Art of Eric Carle (The World of Eric Carle)
As a child, I loved the brilliant colors that popped off the pages of my Eric Carle books. Books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? have such a unique feel to them. This is because of the way Eric Carle uses textures in his tissue paper collages.
In The Art of Eric Carle, the reader learns about the early years of the artist. Eric Carle was born in New York; however, he also lived in Germany when he was a small child during the war. This book describes his life from not only his point of view but also from the points of view of many of the people he worked and collaborated with. From being downgraded at art school from an artist to a typesetting apprentice to touching the hearts of children around the world both in person and through his books, Eric Carle is a household name for many.
This book is a treasure that anyone who has ever opened an Eric Carle book will enjoy.
