  • Caterpillar, Caterpillar, What Do You See? | Carle Museum
    as a huge warm sun fills the background You know we sold quite a few prints because of that show in D C He became animated I bought that print just at the time my grandson was born  It hangs in the hallway Whenever I pass it I think that he is like the caterpillar and I his grandfather am like the sun So you can imagine I was looking forward to finally visiting the museum We continued to chat Later as I thought back to this conversation and to the way this reader identified with a secondary character the sun in a story I always considered to have only one character caterpillar butterfly I recalled a different conversation about the interpretation of Eric Carle s most famous book It was 2003 a slow day in the store Eric Carle had stopped in to sign some copies of his books I asked him Did you have some moral in mind when you began to write The Very Hungry Caterpillar He said I was trying to make a book that would also be a toy I wanted holes in the pages I needed a character to move through the holes I hadn t heard this story and I was surprised I said I think of the story as redemptive because the caterpillar eats all that junkfood and suffers a stomachache but he still gets to turn into a butterfly Eric smiled and said That s what you see I asked him You must have encountered so many interpretations What was the strangest He raised his eyebrows I was in East Berlin in 1989 at a library conference I was seated at a round table with many East German librarians They told me that good socialist children should never read The Very Hungry Caterpillar because it is a tale of the Western consumer society it teaches over consumption  A capitalist parable I suspect Eric Carle would get more pleasure from the interpretation of our museum member from Minneapolis by admin 2 Tags bookselling carle museum events eric carle museum eric carle museum bookstore opinions parental values This entry was posted on Thursday July 29th 2010 at 9 00 am and is filed under Bookselling Musings You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Eliza Brown Categories A Closer Look 1 Authors Illustrators 50 Book Finder 4 Book Lists by Theme 65 Books for Ages 0 3 35 Books for Ages 3 6 86 Books for Ages 6 12 37 Books for Teens Adults 10 Books We Love 42 Books Holiday Seasonal 17 Books Non Fiction 5 Books Poetry 3 Bookselling 15 Caterpillar Reviews 1 Children s Book Industry News 38
