Author and illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since The Very Hungry Caterpillar was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide.

His well-known books captivated readers with his iconic, colourful, hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself.
