Eric Carle

A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC FROM THE CREATOR OF THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR

Eric Carle's only Christmas story is now a board book!

Eric Carle's DREAM SNOW has become a contemporary Christmas classic since it was published more than a decade ago. Now it's the perfect board book for a new generation of Carle fans. The edition includes board-book versions of the marvellous novelty elements that made the original so special - peekaboo animals hidden under the snow, the shimmering tree decorated for the holiday and glittery snowflakes on the cover. It's full of surprises as the Santa-like farmer dreams of snow on Christmas Eve, and wakes to discover real snow has fallen, just in time for him to give gifts to his cherished animals. Imaginative and multi-sensory, it's a Christmas book that reveals the wonder of the season.

The Nonsense Show

Eric Carle

Ducks growing out of bananas?
A mouse catching a cat?
What's wrong with this book?

Yes, there's something strange, something funny and even downright preposterous on every page of this book (and even the cover!). But it's not a mistake - it's nonsense! And it's also surrealism. Nonsense lies at the heart of many beloved nursery rhymes. Children readily accept odd statements like "the cow jumped over the moon" and "the dish ran away with the spoon." This fanciful bending of reality is also basic to surrealism.

In this book, nonsense and surrealism combine to spark creativity and imagination. What's true? What's impossible? What's absolutely absurd? From Eric Carle, creator of the classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, comes a book to make children laugh and think, preparing them for a lifetime of loving both words and art.

Friends

Eric Carle

A new tale of friendship from Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Once there were two friends who were always together... But one day, the boy was all alone. His friend was gone.
The hero of this delightful new story from Eric Carle makes up his mind to find his friend. Undaunted, he sets off on a quest that takes him across a swift cold river, over a tall mountain, through a broad meadow and a forest full of dark shadows. He sleeps under starry skies and dreams of floating on clouds before finally being reunited with his beloved friend.

This wonderfully whimsical tale is a celebration of the value of friendship and the power of a child's imagination, captured in the simple prose and magnificent colourful artwork fans of Eric Carle's work know and love so well.
