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 think we have seven or eight Little Critter books and they are all among my three-year-old boy's favorites.

Just A Little Music has been popular in our house since before my boy turned two. The details in the illustrations are excellent. What I find especially ingenious about them is that they just get richer and richer as your child ages and can discern and identify more of what's going on in the pictures. The illustration that is two full pages wide of the interior of the music store continues to mesmerize my little one after dozens of readings.

Here to pick up a new copy since (as with every other book that is this 8x8" format), the "centerfold" pages have fallen out and gone missing.

I grew up on little critter and now am excited to share the books with my sons. With their daddy's musician family we needed this book. It's nice to be able to add a new book to our collection.

My 3 year old loves this book and we read it over and over (and over). There are not that many really good books with a music theme including a wide range of instruments but many are represented here in an age appropriate book. It also covers the universal theme of a younger sibling getting annoyed by something the big sibling is doing.

This is my 2 year old's favorite book. She loves to read it to me with her version of the story. She especially loves the drum. We love Little Critter's books.

My 1-year-old son got this for his first birthday, and we thought it was so cute, we bought another copy for his cousin who turned 1 shortly afterwards. All the Little Critter books are simple, fun and entertaining and this was no exception. The only thing I find odd with the "new adventures of Little Critter" is that the illustration is a bit different. The parents don't look the same and all the characters are a bit more anthropomorphized. So we decided in our family that the "new adventures" are what happens after the old Little Critter is grown up. He's the dad in the new series and has a son and daughter of his own. It's like what your parents always told you. "I hope you grow up to have a kid JUST LIKE YOU someday!"

You people require way too many words for a description. You would get more reviews if you did not require so many. It is too time consuming to do them when you buy a lot of things.
