It is with great sadness that I have to pass along the information that Eric Carle, of The Very Hungry Caterpillar fame has passed away. He was 91.
I met him in 2008 during a trip to Connecticut and Massachusetts. We had a spare day and I had the internet on my phone (shout out to the HTC Ozone!) so we started looking for things to do. As we researched, we found that we were very far from The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
