The article presents a biography of the children's book author and illustrator Eric Carle. Carle was born in the United States, but returned to Germany with his parents in time to suffer through World War II. He moved back to the United States, ending up with a career in advertising. When Bill Martin Jr. asked him to illustrate "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?," Carle rediscovered the creativity that had been stifled for years. His best known book is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."
