By Maryann Yin 

Children's Book Creator Eric CarlePhilomel, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group, will publish Eric Carle’s new picture book, The Nonsense Show.

A release date has been scheduled for October 2015. The executives at the publishing house have ordered a first printing of 250,000 copies.

Carle (pictured, via) gave this statement in the press release: “The Nonsense Show came to me over a long period of time and I had fun working on it. It is a playful word-and-picture game and an upside-down way of looking at life and the world. I like these topsy-turvy points of view. I appreciate the way Surrealist artists like Magritte showed us all in their paintings that you have to keep looking, keeping paying attention. And keep playing.”
