Eric Carle has written and illustrated many a book over the decades.

He sometimes works with the writer and illustrator  Bill Martin Jr.

‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ (first published in 1969 and almost stuck with the title ‘A week with Willy The Worm!) could easily be his most popular, hotly followed by ‘Brown Bear, Brown, Bear’, and ‘Slowly, Slowly’ – Oh there are so many that could also follow – so…
