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.

Format: Paperback
This book is cute because (as always) Little Critter tells the story, and what Little Critter says is not quite what Little Critter does - and the kids catch on. For example, he drops the hot dogs in the sand and cleans them off by rinsing them in the ocean. He thinks this is fine - Grandma does not look convinced. And his description of his own swimming abilities does not match the frightened Critter wearing a floaty and clinging to his Grandma in the picture.

This book always gets laughs from my 4 year old and she loves pointing out the things that aren't quite right.

My first grade daughter really enjoyed reading this book. There were many words that were repeated which really helps out first time readers. In addition, there were enough new words to keep it challenging for her. The book was just long enough, not too short and not too long. I highly recommend this book for beginning readers. A plus for us, this book was on her AR list.

A Kid's Review on December 9, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Just Grandma and me was a great book I liked reading when I was growing up. It wasn't to hard and it wasn't to easy. Most kids in first grade could most likely read it. They will love it if they like spending time with there grandma. It reminded me in some ways because I know I love spending time with my grandma. In the story Critter and his grandma spend time together at the beach. They do stuff together like me and my grandma do. It is a good book for beginners.

My son has mild autism and it's been quite a challenge trying to find a book on print or CD that would hold his attention. He was 3 yrs old when he received the CD from a friend of mine. Something about Little Critter brought my son out and it's been a "Grandma and me, grandma and me" life for him since then.

A Kid's Review on November 1, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book is about a little boy who was spending time with his grandma down at the beach. They went snorkeling, swimming, and played in the sand.
I like this book because it reminds me of stuff I used to do with my Grandma when I was younger. I also liked this book because it shows little kids that hanging out with your grandma isn't bad and its fun. I think all little kids should read this book, and all the books by Mercer Mayer. Especially this one, with your grandma.

A delightful book, perfect for a gift for any grandma and her grandchild to share. A great story for developing memories of a day at the beach or preparing for one together. Little Critter as always, makes us smile through this heart-warming story.

Great little story in a great little book for great little kids. The book is sturdy and the story is amusing. I'm just grandma :) and my grandson is my little critter. This story helps me remember all my memories of my Nana who was so vital in my life growing up. I can only hope to be as good as her. This helps create quality bonding time in an easy to understand book.
