About the Author

Bill Martin (1916-2004), a writer, editor, educator, was a primary school teacher and principal. In 1967, he got inspiration from the train and created Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Are You Looking at, and invited Eric Carr to draw illustrations.

Eric Carle was born in Syracuse, New York on June 25, 1929. His parents are both German. When he was 6 years old, he moved back to Germany with his parents. Eric Carr hated German style education. He dropped out of high school at the age of 16. Under the persuasion of his teacher, he studied visual art in a prestigious art school in Stuttgart for 4 years.

During the semester, he drew a series of posters for the US Intelligence Center. After graduation, he worked as an art director in a fashion magazine, but he missed the classroom full of sunshine and free painting in the United States when he was a child so much that he wanted to go back to the United States. Finally, at the age of 23 in 1952, with 40 dollars in his pocket, he returned to New York alone after 17 years of separation. He called Leo Leoni, who was the artistic director of Fortune Magazine at that time and later became famous for his works like Little Blue and Little Yellow and Little Black Fish.
