Every child has an artist inside them, and this vibrant picture book from Eric Carle will help let it out. The artist in this book paints the world as he sees it, just like a child. Theres a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox and a polka-dotted donkey. More than anything, theres imagination. Filled with some of the most magnificently colorful animals of Eric Carles career, this tribute to the creative life celebrates the power of art.
Blue horses are encapsulated here within a halo-like swirl of white. In the background sits an abstract scene which also utilises Franz Marc's use of colour for symbolism.

Besides there, he would also make use of several other animals in his work, such as cows and pigs. He held a similar appreciation for the relative naivety of animals as compared to humans as that of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. He famously produced sketches of owls and penguins.
