The Lovereading4Kids comment
March 2015 Book of the Month Eric Carle, the world-famous creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, loves animals – especially cats. His cat Fiffi is the first favourite animal followed by Peter McCarty’s great big Bunny and Rosemary Wells rather small dog! Lane Smith’s favourite is a handsome elephant while Jon Klassen likes ducks best. Each illustrator has created an original picture in this special catalogue reflecting a wide range of talents.
All roylaties from this book will be donated to The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, which was founded by Eric and Barbara Carle in 2002.

What's Your Favourite Animal? by Eric Carle
Bringing together some of the finest modern children's-book illustrators of our time - Jon Klassen, Eric Carle, Lucy Cousins, Nick Bruel, Susan Jeffers, Steven Kellogg, Tom Litchtenheld, Peter McCarty, Chris Raschka, Peter Sis, Lane Smith, Erin Stead, Rosemary Wells, Mo Willems.
Eric Carle asks, What's your favourite animal? and the result is an astonishingly colourful parade of animals, from giraffes with their heads in the clouds to fuzzy dogs and squishy snails. Some artists reveal their choices with a personal story, others with a comic turn; all will undoubtedly inspire children to draw and tell a story about their own favourite animal!
