More About the Author

MERCER MAYER began writing and illustrating children's books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator's books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters.

"Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid," says Mercer. "Now that I'm a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always help remind me of what it was like."

Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Mercer Mayer spent his childhood hunting lizards and snakes in the swamps near his home. During his teenage years, he attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He later received additional training at the Art Students League in New York City. Upon completion of his studies, he set out with pen and ink to write and illustrate a collection of children's books, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child.

In 2007, Mr. Mayer was commissioned by Laura Bush to create the artwork used for the National Book Festival held on September 29 on the National Mall. He was an honored guest to the event, giving a demonstration and autographing hundreds of books for fans who attended.

I recommend All By Myself by Mercer Mayer to all ages. I'm in sixth grade but I still enjoy reading this book. When I was in fifth grade, I read this book to a kindergartner and he loved it! There is a series of Mercer Mayer's books about the main character, Little Critter's, life. YOU HAVE TO READ THEM!

I've bought a number of Little Critter books for my nieces, because they really like them.

And anyway, they're short, they're funny, they're topical, and they're cheap.

In this one, Little Critter details all the things he can do "by himself". Of course, the illustrations give the lie to his words - sure he can pour his own juice, but he doesn't say that he spills, that sort of thing.

Anyway, he very cutely does a lot of things "by himself" before reading that he can't tuck himself into bed - he needs a story.

Aw.

I just bought this book for the second time. My girls (2 and 4) have almost all of the books in the "Little Critter" series. Recently, my 2-year-old took "All by Myself" on the road and lost it. Both girls want it back ASAP. (By the way, the age group rating is obviously overstated at 4-years-old since my 2-year old is a big fan.)

Mercer Mayer's - All by Myself finds Little Critter is growing up. Little Critter can ride his bike and give his bear a drink, he can kick a ball and roll on the ground, he can even look after his little sister. He helps dad trim a bush and helps mom put frosting on a cake. He reads a book to his little sister and he can color a picture. But, he cannot go to sleep without a story.

There are numerous things he can do for himself. He can get out of bed with no help, he can dress himself and brush his fur, he can put on his socks and tie his shoes. Little Critter can even pour some juice for his little sister, and, he can lend a hand to her as she eats her breakfast.

All by Myself is packed with the same child pleasing, colored pencil illustrations that are always a key component of Mercer Mayer works. Little Critter has been a longtime choice for my K - 1 students.

Many Mercer Mayer Little Critter books also feature tiny 'littler critters' who move from page to page with Little Critter and take part in his adventures, antics and exploits. All by Myself features our old comrade, mouse. The students in my present first grade class get pleasure from watching both Little Critter as his story is told; along with noting the actions of the tiny one too.

Little Critter does many of the things my students do. He dresses himself, brushes his own hair and ties his own shoes. My students regularly come to school with hair wildly awry to proudly announce, I combed my own hair. Numerous first graders tie their shoes, NOT along with shoes on the wrong feet and even now and then one black and one brown. Besides, who said striped shirts cannot be worn with flowered pants?

Mouse trails along with Little Critter from incident to escapade.

Format: Paperback
This book is about a little boy who is trying to do everything by himself but there are somethings that he coldnt't do like at bedtime when he wanted to read his bedtime story. It teaches young kids to do things like get dressed and things like that. I think kids 5 and under would like this book. I thought the book was good i would have liked it more if i was 10 years younger.

My daughter has many of Mr. Mercer's books and loves everyone of them. They are easy for her to read, have fun illustrations and good messages about how children (and adults) should conduct themselves.

This book is a cute one with a great story line. The fact that it is a little critter book not only offers a great story for my son, but offers a little hide and seek game as well. He enjoys looking for the critters in these types of books and gets very excited when he finds them. The story line is cute and easy for him to understand and the pictures are nice and bright and keeps his attention as I read to him. I think this is great because it seemed to encourage my son a little bit do more by himself because his favorite character in this book is trying to do things by himself. Very cute!
