About the Author
Eric Carle well-known creator of many beloved picture books for small readers and listeners, including such classics as Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me, The Tiny Seed, Rooster's Off to See the World, A House for Hermit Crab, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He is especially celebrated for his unique ability to combine learning with pleasure.

Born in Syracuse, New York, Eric Carle received much of his education in Germany. He is a graduate of the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Stuttgart, where he learned about Goethe's color theory and complementary colors. But the chief inspiration for Hello, Red Fox came from his talks with young readers themselves, who were surprised and fascinated when he demonstrated for them just like in this book that all colors have opposites.
Eric Carle has two grown children. He and his wife live in western Massachusetts.
