As a kid, I loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I remember the illustrations more than the story. Eric Carle’s torn paper style is so childlike and fun, and the different textures and movements in each picture add the right amount of playfulness to the story. On his website, Carle explains his process for making each picture. When the process is shared, it adds so much more to the actual work. Go here to see more of Carle’s work.
