How can I get in touch with
Eric Carle?

I love to hear from my fans and welcome you to write.

You may send letters via snail mail to:
Eric Carle, P.O. Box 485, Northampton, MA 01060, USA.

You are also welcome to leave me a message in the guestbook on my web site.

Or you may send an e-mail message to me directly at

Specially for Teachers: If you are writing as a class, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send one mailing of all the letters instead of having each child send his or her letter in a separate envelope (and it saves postage for you). Although I would love to be able to write to each child individually, I am afraid if I did, I wouldn’t have enough time left for working on new books. Also, when you send something for me to look at, a drawing, a book, a video, etc. that you want returned to you, please enclose a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope). Many thanks.

I look forward to hearing from you!
