2019 is the 50th anniversary year of my book The Very Hungry Caterpillar!


  1. Dear Eric Carle,

    We are Mrs. Turner's first graders in Texas and we are researching and learning all about YOU! We are wondering if you are still writing books and what is your latest book? Also, we would like to know which book was the most difficult for you to illustrate and write?

    Thank you for your time! We hope you are able to answer our questions!

    The Best First Graders in Texas

  2. Hi Mr Carle
    The City of Marion Libraries South Australia where I work in the children’s team are doing a huge celebration of the Hungry Caterpillar. There is going to be storytelling and craft sessions with local kindergartens invited, cutouts of the caterpillar and some of the food, finger puppets and lots more. The book is a hot favourite among the Children's Services team at the library and any chance we get, we pick up the book to read to kids!
