#11 "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle    (MSCED #42)

Book #11 "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle

A story of a strange feast resulting in a transformation that illustrates how beautiful and mysterious nature can be. I remember turning every page eagerly find out where the hole led as the very hungry caterpillar ate his way through the book.

Eric Carle's distinctive collage style is warm and super rich with colours and textures. He also advanced the genre with his interactive cut-out designs and hand-made materials.

I personally can not think of a more influential artist in all my own picture book projects.
