Happy 40th anniversary to "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle!
Many a bedtime was spent reading this picturebook to our children and waiting while they poked their fingers into each hole the caterpillar had nibbled. I think they used to know the text by heart.
Bright sunny colors, collage, and whimsy--Carle's artwork in a nutshell.
Here's a video of the illustrator and author talking about the making of his well-loved book.
