Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar comes a brilliant new Eric Carle board book for the artist in us all.

Every child has an artist inside them, and this vibrant picture book from Eric Carle will help let it out. The artist in this book paints the world as he sees it, just like a child. There's a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox and a polka-dotted donkey. More than anything, there's imagination. Filled with some of the most magnificently colorful animals of Eric Carle's career, this new board book edition is a tribute to the creative life and celebrates the power of art.

Praise for The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse 

* "A testimony to Carle's gifts..." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Simple and splendid." — Booklist, starred review

"Another masterpiece from a master artist." — School Library Journal
