Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has a new children’s book about an artist who — like the author — enjoys stepping out of the box. It’s called The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse.
The  child in the book paints a number of animals with unconventional  colors. The book opens with the child declaring, “I am an artist,” and  ends with the character, splashed with paint, saying, “I am a good  artist.”

Did you hear about this?

Artichoke Trust recreated the Mad Hatter’s tea party in Norfolk, England over the summer. Dining with Alice served up an enticing and enchanting Victorian feast created by gastronomic magicians Bompas & Parr. Each guest was transported straight to the heart of Lewis Carroll’s imaginary world in an unforgettable evening.

Wish we were there!
