Our hearts were heavy when we learned that Eric Carle, author and illustrator, passed away on Sunday 23 May at the age of 91. His classic stories – in particular The Very Hungry Caterpillar - have been read and loved by generations of children and adults alike and will endure long after his passing.

Eric Carle began his career as an illustrator and graphic designer. As an illustrator for other picture books, he picked up the rhythmic simplicity of the accompanying words and would go on to create some of the most iconic and loved picture books we still read today.
 


When asked why he thinks The Very Hungry Caterpillar has remained popular for so long, Carle said, “I think it is a book of hope. Children need hope. You, little insignificant caterpillar can grow up into a beautiful butterfly and fly into the world with your talent.”
