Eric Carle and Tomie dePaola: Author One-on-One

Eric Carle is the creator, author, and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and many other children\'s books. Tomie dePaola is the author and illustrator of Strega Nona: Her Story and countless other books. They recently had a conversation about their careers as picture book authors.


Tomie dePaola: When I was only four years old, I announced to my family in particular and to the world in
general that I was going to become an artist, and write stories and draw pictures for books. I never swayed

from that early declaration. I\'ve always been curious to know, what inspired you to become a creator and

illustrator of picture books?

Eric Carle: My career began as a graphic designer and for a number of years I worked as an art director for an advertising agency in New York. In the mid 1960\'s Bill Martin, Jr. saw an ad of a red lobster that I had designed and asked me to illustrate his Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What  Do You See? Well, I was set on fire! I was so inspired by this book, and the opportunity to illustrate it changed my life. After that, I started to create my own books, both words and pictures, and really it was then that I had found my true course in life.

Now, I have a question for you, Tomie. How would you describe your artistic style, and has it changed over time?

Tomie dePaola: My illustration style is heavily influenced by folk art--strong simple shapes, bold lines, color, color, color and a deceptive simplicity. My style began to develop early in art school, and through the years, it hasn\'t changed very much, but it has refined itself. How would you describe yours?

Eric Carle: My aim with my work is to simplify and refine, be logical and harmonious. I like to use simple shapes, bright colors and a lot of white space. I write for the child inside of me. That is always where I begin.

Tomie dePaola: I do, as well. The only audience I keep in mind is that four-year-old in me. People sometimes ask me what advice I would give to young artists. I always think of the wonderful advice I received from my twin cousins when they were in art school in the late \'30s. They told me, "Practice, practice, practice and don\'t copy."

Eric Carle: I often tell people about the four magic letters: DO IT. I want to be encouraging but I can only offer the example of my own experience, which is just one approach. There are many wonderful artists to learn about, which is important. But you must use your own imagination. You have to just do it.

Tomie dePaola: How do you feel knowing that a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar  is sold every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world?

Eric Carle: It is hard for me, maybe for others too, to grasp this concept. But I am truly honored that my story is enjoyed by so many and that it is now being shared by a generation of parents who grew up with my book. How about your Strega Nona. She is one of your most popular characters. Can you share how she came to be?

Tomie dePaola: In the \'70s when I was teaching at a college, we were required to attend faculty meetings. I always sat in the back with a yellow legal pad. Everyone thought I was taking notes. At one meeting a doodle appeared of a little lady with a big nose and a big chin. I named her Strega Nona, and the rest is history. Speaking of history, how will you be celebrating the third annual Very Hungry Caterpillar Day this year?

Eric Carle: On The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day, March 20th, I will probably be at home with my wife, Bobbie (I am a bit of a hermit, actually). But I will be saying a little toast to the caterpillar for whom I have a special place in my heart. And speaking of holidays, isn\'t your favorite holiday Christmas. Do you have a special Christmas memory?

Tomie dePaola: Christmas is my favorite holiday. My favorite Christmas was the one when I received tons and tons of art supplies: everything from an easel to paints, pads and pads of paper, and "how to draw" books.

Little Nutbrown Hare,who was going to bed, held on tight to Big Nutbrown Hare\'s verylong ears.He wanted to be sure that Big Nutbrown Hare waslistening.
"Guess howmuch I love you," he said.
"Oh, Idon\'t think I could guess that," said Big NutbrownHare.
"Thismuch," said Little Nutbrown Hare, stretching out his arms as wideas they could go.
Big Nutbrown Hare had evenlonger arms. "But I love you this much," he said.
Hmm, that is a lot, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.
"I love you as high as I canreach," said Little Nutbrown Hare.
"I love you as high as I canreach," said Big Nutbrown Hare.
That is very high, thought Little Nutbrown Hare. I wish I had armslike that.
Then Little Nutbrown Hare hada good idea. He tumbled upside down and reached up the tree trunkwith his feet.
"I love you all the way up to my toes!" he said.
"And I love you all the way upto your toes," said Big Nutbrown Hare, swinging him up over hishead.
"I love you as high as I canhop!" laughed Little Nutbrown Hare, bouncing up anddown.
"But I love you as high as Ican hop," smiled Big Nutbrown Hare-and he hopped so high that hisears touched the branches above.
That\'s good hopping, thought Little Nutbrown Hare. I wish I couldhop like that.
"I love you all the way downthe lane as far as the river," cried Little Nutbrown Hare.
"I love you across the river and over the hills," said Big NutbrownHare.
 
That\'s very far, thoughtLittle Nutbrown Hare. He was almost too sleepy to thinkanymore.
Then he looked beyond the thornbushes, out into the big dark night.Nothing could be farther than the sky.
"I love you right up to themoon," he said, and closed his eyes.
"Oh, that\'s far," said Big Nutbrown Hare. "That is very, veryfar."
 
BigNutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed ofleaves.
He leanedover and kissed him good night.
 
Then he lay down close by andwhispered with a smile, 
"I love you right up to themoon ----
and back."

DUCK ON A BIKE By David Shannon

Product details

  • Paperback: 36 pages
  • Language: English
  • Product Dimensions: 8.2 x 0.2 x 10.8 inches
  • Shipping Weight: 4 ounces
Book Description
One day down on the farm, Duck got a wild idea. "I bet I could ride a bike," he thought. He waddled over to where the boy parked his bike, climbed on and began to ride. At first he rode slowly and he wobbled a lot, but it was fun! Duck rode past Cow and waved to her. "Hello, Cow!" said Duck. "Moo," said Cow. But what she thought was, "A duck on a bike? That\'s the silliest thing I\'ve ever seen!"
And so Duck rides past sheep, horse, and all the other barnyard animals

 

Editorial Reviews

Shannon serves up a sunny blend of humor and action in this delightful tale of a Duck who spies a red bicycle one day and gets "a wild idea." Sure enough, in no time flat, he\'s tooling around the farmyard. A succession of his barnyard friends greet him politely enough, but their private responses range from scornful ("That\'s the silliest thing I\'ve ever seen," from Cow) to boastful ("You\'re still not as fast as me," from Horse) to wistful ("I wish I could ride a bike just like Duck," from Mouse). Then a herd of kids rides down the road in a blur of dust; they park their bikes and head indoors. A wordless spread records the sublime moment when the animals all gather with identical wide-eyed looks and sly smiles. Readers can almost see what they\'re thinking, and sure enough, the next spread shows them all zipping around on bikes, with Duck in the lead. Shannon makes the most of awkward appendages on wheels and handlebars, and deftly balances clean compositions with just the right amount of detail. Varying perspectives including the chicken\'s-eye-view of Duck\'s bike wheel looming large provide plenty of good-natured dash. Add to all this the abundant opportunity for youngsters to chime in with barnyard responses ("M-o-o-o"; "Cluck! Cluck!"), and the result is one swell read-aloud, packed with freewheeling fun.
