I don't think much needs to be said about this book because I think pretty much everyone has read it. You know it's going to be special as soon as you touch the pages which are heavier than your average paper. From that point on it is virtuosity. The story is succinct, educational (you learn numbers, foods, and about butterfly life cycles), and beautiful. The author bio on the back cover says "His pictures for this book are cut and layered collages... overprinted with ink, crayon, and tempura". Super cool. Someday I'd love to visit the Eric Carle Museaum of Picture Book Art. Unfortunately it's in Massachusetts. And I missed an exhibit of children's art that is at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (until June 15 all you Barbarians) before it travels to MA. So many wonderful thing so little time.
