This is another great book by Mercer Mayer! My daughter loves these books and loved this one especially. I got it for her right before Halloween and she had to have it read to her for two weeks straight. The illustrations are fantastic!

My daughter is 3 and she loves Little Critter thank goodness cause it is one of the few characters my husband and I can read about over and over. I think this was helpful in showing her Halloween isn't really scary, which is what I was looking for.

This is a cute Little Critter book to get your toddler excited for Halloween. My daughter enjoys it and chooses it for story time pretty often; however, she does find some of the costumes ("a little scary"). She is 3 for a reference point.

My girls really enjoyed reading this book. The flaps for flipping seem to be a winner! I know its a hit when I'm asked to read it several times in a week.

My daughter loved this book. We received it today and already read it a few times. In the evening before going to bed her first words are always: "Let's read a story, how about Little Critter". Today, of course she wanted the new book and we played trick or treating too. This book does not offer a complicated story. It shows Little Critter going to a party where he meets all his friends who are dressed up in scary costumes. The book is really about fighting fears that children might have. Every time Little Critter gets scared, he sees who is behind the costume and his fears are eased. It is great for kids who are afraid of those scary costumes and might give them confidence that behind all scary stuff there is just a person. This book was very worth it, just like everything else by Mercer Mayer.

Critter books are a big hit with my 2 year old daughter. We got this to hopefully lessen the scare of Halloween this year. The book nicely shows say a ghost then you flip the flap out to see which of Critter's friends is the ghost (my daughter was able to put it together after being shown once). A great book for the Critter fan.

My 2 year old wanted to read this story every night for at least a month prior to halloween. We are now past Thanksgiving and she is still reading this to her baby dolls.

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.
