About the book: 

A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC FROM THE CREATOR OF THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAREric Carle's only Christmas story is now a board book!Eric Carle's DREAM SNOW has become a contemporary Christmas classic since it was published more than a decade ago. Now it's the perfect board book for a new generation of Carle fans. The edition includes board-book versions of the marvellous novelty elements that made the original so special - peekaboo animals hidden under the snow, the shimmering tree decorated for the holiday and glittery snowflakes on the cover. It's full of surprises as the Santa-like farmer dreams of snow on Christmas Eve, and wakes to discover real snow has fallen, just in time for him to give gifts to his cherished animals. Imaginative and multi-sensory, it's a Christmas book that reveals the wonder of the season.

About the Author

Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has eaten its way into the hearts of literally millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 25 languages and sold over twelve million copies. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote.

Eric Carle's art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. Many of his books have an added dimension - die-cut pages, twinkling lights as in The Very Lonely Firefly, even the lifelike sound of a cricket's song as in The Very Quiet Cricket - giving them a playful quality: a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched. Children also enjoy working in collage and many send him pictures they have made themselves, inspired by his illustrations. He receives hundreds of letters each week from his young admirers. The secret of Eric Carle's books' appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
