About the Author

Eric Carle is the creator of more than seventy picture books for young readers.

Eric Carle was born in New York, USA. However, when he was just six, he moved with his parents to Germany. In 1952, after graduating from the prestigious Akademie der Bildenden KÜnste in Stuttgart, he fulfilled his dream of returning to New York.

Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.

In 2002, fifty years after Carle's return to the United States, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art was opened in Amherst, Massachusetts. Here visitors of all ages can enjoy, in addition to Eric Carle's work, original artwork by other distinguished children's book illustrators from around the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Kids Book Oct. 22 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a great children's book, where the ladybug meets the other ladybug and the grouchy ladybug didn't want to share with the other ladybug. So the grouchy ladybug asked the ladybug if it wanted to fight so the ladybug just smiled and said ok but the grouch ladybug said he wasn't big enough for him. Then the lady bug went flying around for about an hour and asked lots and lots of animals if they wanted to fight of course they all said yes and just smiled but none of them where big enough for him.
This book would teach a kid that people aren't going to be happy all the time. It also would teach a kid that sharing is good and you should do it as much as possible, because you and the person that you share it with will be both happy. I recommend this book because, what it would teach kids and its just a good book and I enjoyed it. I hope that everyone else that reads it enjoys it to. Its funny how the ladybug thinks nothing is big enough for him to fight when there hundreds of times bigger then he is. Every hour he asked a different animal if it wanted to fight each time it was bigger eventualy when he got to a whale he didn't know how big it was and asked for fight its tail and its fin and the whale.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book to read when you're feeling grouchy May 17 2000
Format:Board book
Carle's story explores the concepts of time, size and manners through the exploits of one very grouchy ladybug. When it refuses to share aphids with another ladybug, the grouchy insect flies off to pick a fight an hour with a succession of ever-larger animals. Kids will love the way the tension seems to build in the story. Will the ladybug get its comeuppance? Or will it learn to mind its manners? (If you don't remember, you'll just have to read it yourself to find out!)
Carle employs his almost trademarked tissue paper and tempera collages to great effect here as he renders more than a dozen different animals. He includes a clock face at the top of each page, to help kids track the passing of time. A good book to read when you or your little one is in a grouchy mood.
This is one of those classic picture books that doesn't lose anything in the translation to board book. If anything, it is improved since the die-cut pages hold up a lot better when they are made of thick board.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ages 4-8 years, The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle April 21 1999
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle, is about a groughy ladybug that does not want to share the aphids on this leaf with the friendly ladybug so he says that he will fight the other ladybug for the aphids. Then he says that the friendly ladybug is not big enough to fight, so he flies away to find an animal that is bigger to fight. It asked a yellow jacket, stag beetle, praying mantis, sparrow, lobster, skunk, boa constrictor, hyena, gorilla, rhinoceros, and an elephant. But, the grouchy ladybug said that all the animals were not big enough. Finally, the ladybug ran into a wahale and he said to the whale that it was not big enough to fight, so he flew away. Fifteen minutes later the ladybug asked the whale's flipper if it wanted and it got no answer. Fifteen minutes later the ladybug ran into the wahale's fin and asked if it wanted to fight and once again got no answer. Fifteen minutes later the ladybug ran into the whale's tail and asked if it wanted to fight and the tail gave him a slap so hard the ladybug flew over the ocean and the land. Then the ladybug ended up where he started and agreed to share the aphids with the friendly ladybug. after the aphids were gone the leaf thanked the ladybugs.
