About the Author

Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating books for children for more than forty years. His most recognized character, the lovable and charismatic Little Critter®, was born in 1975 in the book Just for You. Mercer's Little Critter has since starred in more than two hundred books, which have sold over one hundred and fifty million copies. Born in Arkansas, Mercer now lives in New England with his family.


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.

Mercer Mayer is always the king of great childrens books. My only problem when buying this one was I could not find the story titles in the book listed online. So here they are...

All the Little Critter books are appropriate for young children and contain common morals and situations. I was lucky enough to meet the author and found him charming.

My son (4yrs) cannot put this book down. He loves the little critter characters, and the words are easy to read. If your young one is ready for a reading confidence booster, this is it!

My 4 year old daughter loves Little Critter, and I purchased this book along with Just a Little Critter Story Collection. A couple of the stories in this book have become her favorites (one about visiting grandparents and one about a snow day). However, there are a couple of stories in here about transportation that are very, very simple...as though they were originally toddler board books. My daughter gets tired of them very quickly, and so do I. I would have liked this collection better if all the stories had been on the same "level."

I raised my oldest child on the Little Critter books and now my two youngest children are listening to the same stories. Easy reading.... young children are able to follow the story line.... Timeless subjects... Thank you!

The stories are like all Little Critter stories, fun to read. The book is well bound but the page quality seemed not as good as the single ones. The newer Little Critter books had nice glossy pages (Little Critter: Grandma, Grandpa, and Me is one such book) while the collection pages were not. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed the book and the price was right...which is why I still gave it 5 stars rather then 4.

My son adores the little critter books, and loves the various adventures he goes through, and the characters he meets. This book is doing wonders to encourage him to read, and he is learning quickly. A must buy!
