Meet the Author

Mercer Mayer – writer and illustrator for Little Critter First Readers, as well as Little Critter Spectrum 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 book, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child.

    Ok?

    My sister bought this for her daughter to do over the summer. She figures it will help keep the things she learned in school in her head over the break. I think it is ridiculous to make the kid continue to do homework while no other child in her class is. We haven't used it yet, since its not summer. I say, if your kid is struggling and needs a little boost to their education, go for it. If you just want it for the summer and your child does well in school, LET THEM ENJOY SUMMER!!!!!!!!!
