About this title


Generations of readers have grown up with Eric Carle's deceptively simple picture books, which combine entertaining stories, glorious cut-paper collages, and gentle lessons about a child's world. Here are seven of his stories collected in one handsome volume: "The Tiny Seed," "Pancakes, Pancakes!," "The Mountain That Loved A Bird," "Walter The Baker," "A House for Hermit Crab," "The Greedy Python," and "Rooster's Off to See the World." Dazzling collages of hand-painted tissue paper will entice young readers to become acquainted with numbers, the seasons, and the days of the week as they read. A tiny seed travels through fall, winter, spring, and summer looking for a place to grow into a flower. Jack gathers ingredients for pancakes and learns how to cook, flip, and finish them. A little bird brings a renewal of life and happiness to a lonely, barren mountain. Walter the baker must invent a tasty roll through which the rising sun can shine three times. Hermit Crab learns that in order to grow, one must be willing to move on. A python is so excessively greedy that is finally eats itself. And Rooster sets off to see the wide world in a day-long adventure. These seven stories, each representing the best of picture-book master Eric Carle, will excite the imaginations of children and encourage their curiousity about the world around them.
