Description
Eric Carle well-known creator of many beloved picture books for small readers and listeners, including such classics as "Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me, The Tiny Seed, Rooster's Off to See the World, A House for Hermit Crab, " and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." He is especially celebrated for his unique ability to combine learning with pleasure. Children delight in the distinctive beauty of his illustrations -- richly layered collages in glowing colors -- and they love his entertaining stories, which invite them to make their own discoveries in a natural, joyful way.

Born in Syracuse, New York, Eric Carle received much of his education in Germany. He is a graduate of the Akademie der bildenden Kunste in Stuttgart, where he learned about Goethe's color theory and complementary colors. But the chief inspiration for "Hello, Red Fox" came from his talks with young readers themselves, who were surprised and fascinated when he demonstrated for them -- just like in this book -- that all colors have opposites.

Eric Carle has two grown children. He and his wife live in western Massachusetts.
