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.

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."

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.

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!

My 2 year old loves this Little Critter book (Just a Little Critter Collection (Little Critter)) so I was excited to find this other collection of stories. He doesn't like these as much. I was disappointed in the drawings, they don't have the same hand-drawn quality and character as the older stories. The stories are bland and don't show the spunkiness that I found with the older Little Critter stories. There were also a couple of stories that were big on eating right and exercising, which I suppose is good to teach kids about, but in terms of entertainment value, not so exciting to read about. As soon as my 2 year old heard the line, "Carrots are good for you because they have vitamins that help you grow", he wanted to read something else. He did enjoy the tugboat and dump truck stories, though. This probably won't go as far as the previous Little Critter collection we have, but since so many other people here gave this 5 stars, it's definitely an issue of personal preference.
