The Artist who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle


Eric Carle's artist (modeled after German painter Franz Marc) paints a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox, and a polka-dotted donkey. This colorful picture book will help children discover the artist within. Thank you, Eric Carle, for this wonderful tribute to Franz Marc.
