“I still consider myself a beginner at learning how to use the computer – but I can see how technology and the development of apps, e-books and computers are a part of the evolution of our world. It has been this way since the very beginning. Cave men once wrote stories in pictures on stone; later the book was invented and so on and so forth. So change is inevitable. And I am very pleased and honored that my work is being enjoyed in different formats by so many readers around the world.” Author Eric Carle said in a statement.
