Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Mercer Mayer's Little Critter character is a well established, friendly, little monster (a bit reminiscent of Big Foot) who does things with equally cute monster friends. In this case, Little Critter is experiencing a combination of anxiety and anticipation about his first day of school. In each spread, Little Critter reports on something that is happening; the right hand side of the page has a fold-over that opens up to start off another sequence. Thus under the page that describes what happens during recess the fold over reveals the children being called back into class. In the end, of course, Little Critter finds that school has both ups and downs but all in all, he is eager to keep going. The story is pleasant enough; it may well be reassuring to young children facing their own first day. However, the book does not move much beyond a concept just as the fold-over page feels rather like a gimmick. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
