Eric Carle is known the world over for his beautiful picture books for very young children, with their simple and entertaining yet educationally sound stories and their distinctive collage illustrations. Born in Syracuse, New York, he moved with his parents to Germany, where he studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Stuttgart. On returning to the United States, he worked for a time as a graphic designer for "The New York Times, " and then for a large advertising agency. His first children's book, "1,2,3 to the Zoo" (1968) was an immediate success and his second, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" (1969) brought him international acclaim and has established itself as a modern classic. He and his wife now live in northern Massachusetts.

A simpler version of "Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me" was written by Mr. Carle a number of years ago for his daughter Cirsten, who found it both heartening and inspiring. Now he has created new illustrations for his original story, and shares its message with a wider audience.
