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
Gives a perspective about nightmares and lets preschooler know they are okay and happen to everybody. Little Critter has a dream that he drinks a magic potion and does wild stuff that he is never allowed to do : skip his baths, have a gorilla for a pet, eat icecream for breakfast, etc. Then when he gets sleepy in his dream, there is no one to tuck him in, read him a story, and give him a hug (the nightmare part). He wakes up to his Mom and Dad comforting him, tucking him in, and giving him warm milk.

I read this book to my 3-yr-old son. He is both surprised and excited about the idea that little critter can do whatever he wants after drinking the magic potion. My son can imagine that he is little critter who can eat as much ice creams and chocalateas he wants and stay up as late as he wants. At the end little critter still wants his mom and dad to tug him in and hug him. So is my son. My son can relate to this book. No wonder he loves it.

I bought this book because my kids have many Mercer Meyer's books. They love the stories, it's like they feel all these stories have happened to them or are happening to them. One of my sons is always scared at night and is always talking about having bad dreams so I bought this book and read it to him. He doesn't seem to feel scared anymore after reading the story. These books are very simple to read for children and easy to understand because they are so colorful and full of pictures.

I read these as a child now my daughter loves reading them. She is only learning to read but she has loved these books for over a year anyway. Her favorite part is finding the spider/mouse/grasshopper on each page.

This is a great book, but so are all of the Mercer Mayer books.
If your reading to your Children, I would get this book.

We have a lot of these, because they're so inexpensive.

I don't like how Little Critter spends most of his dream being mean to his parents. Sure, he eventually feels lonely and sad and wakes up from his nightmare (since that's what it is), but it still sits wrong with me.

I love the Critter books. Great stories with issues and lessons kids can relate to. This one also touches on having everything you want isn't all it's cracked up to be.
