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 simply makes me smile. You can't help but fall in love with Little Critter and his attempt to make Christmas a success. He tries to bake cookies, but he eats them himself. He tries his hardest to go right to sleep on Christmas Eve, but he is too excited. Thinking he is doing his parents a favor, Little Critter wakes up at 6 AM and brings his new toys upstairs instead of having his parents get out of bed. Mayer's illustrations and fun and colorful. One or two sentences of text are a perfect addition to the pictures. Children will not lose interest in this book because of the short text and appealing color. Mayer's choice to add a special critter (spider, grasshopper, etc.) on each page makes it fun to search for them with children. This is an excellent book to read to young children around the holidays. After reading it, you will want to buy more in the series.

Format: Paperback
I find this story very cute and funny, I think it is adorable how the little boy tries to do all good things for his parents and he just has the hardest time doing them. I think all children could relate to this story because when Christmas time comes around they want to do all they can because they know Santa is watching and they have to especially good. I would reccomend this book to all ages because I think they would find it cute just as I did.

We love Little Critter books around here. They're short, they're funny, they're topical, and they're cheap.

This one is just a sweet story about how Little Critter tries to make a special Christmas for his parents - naturally, following the formula of these books, he doesn't get it *quite* right. But that's okay :)

Format: Paperback
A great book, full of charming situations that remind you that sometimes good efforts do not always have the desired outcome. This fun book will surely become a Christmas and year round favorite. As a kindergarten teacher, I see it very perdictable for young readers. Enjoy!

This book, Merry Christmas Mom and Dad, is a good book to teach little kids to try to do their best no matter what. He tries to help out, but he ends up making even more mess. This book is really cute! It is a book both girls and boys will enjoy.

Format: Paperback
This is a pretty cute book. This one doesn't have the questionable content that some of his other books in this series, so if you're concerned about that, you won't have to with this one. The critter is trying his best to do things to wish his mom and dad Merry Christmas, but things just seem to go wrong. He gets all wrapped up in the tape when wrapping a gift, tangled in the lights when trying to get them out, and breaking all the bulbs for the tree. It reminds you of a little booklet that a child would write for school on his Christmas at home. It's cute, and captures the heart of a child at Christmas when trying to give his parents that special gift. I recommend this Mayer book.
