    Eric Carle Facts
    Born in New York in 1929, Eric moved to Germany when he was six years old and grew up there, graduating from a prestigious art school in Stuttgart. He returned to New York in 1952 and landed his first job as a graphic designer at The New York Times. He later became Art Director of an advertising agency for many years. It was here that one of his illustrations caught the eye of author Bill Martin Jr who asked him to collaborate on what became his first book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

    Eric’s illustrations have an instantly recognisable style with the themes of his stories often drawing on his love of nature. As well as entertaining small children, his books also educate them about the world around them.
