I had a nice surprise yesterday when I went to Google's home page to do a search. If you're thinking the illustration style is familiar, you'd be right: it's by the legendary Eric Carle. His ever-popular The Very Hungry Caterpillar celebrated its 40th birthday yesterday and Google decided to do a tribute to the book.
The tribute follows a similar tribute to Dr Seuss of 2 March this year. Google has done tributes to great artists before (my favourite is the one they did for Jackson Pollock's birthday) but these are first two tributes to children's authors/illustrators. Nice.
