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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable!
Reviewed in the United States on April 21, 2021
This book is every bit as cute as the rest of the Little Critter series! I don't understand the negative comments at all. Little Critter and his little sister are stuck in the house on a rainy day, and he has trouble finding an activity to keep him occupied. There is the expected miffed vibe to Little Critter as is seen in so many of these books.. none the things he tries to do works out. The end of the day gets better when dad comes home from work with a truck to replace the one he had broken and a plush rabbit for Little Sister. Nothing sensational or wrong here from my perspective.. it's not like Mercer Mayer wrote about endless complaints and the kids relentlessly begging for toys only for the parents to 'give in' (their dad was at work and didn't even know they had had a bad day). The story is sweet, and the illustrations are excellent. Don't be deterred by negative reviews! It belongs in your Little Critter collection.
