Happy Birthday to Mercer Mayer Autographed Book Giveaway

Award-winning American children’s book author and illustrator Mercer Mayer is turning the 69!

His most famous character, Little Critter, appeared in the book Just For You in 1975. We had this book and many many more when I was a kid. Actually, many of my childhood paperbacks are now on my children’s bookshelf. My favorite is I Was So Mad. Makes us giggle!

“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 and grandchildren. They always remind me of what it is like to be little.”

There is another reason Mercer Mayer and his publishing company Silver Dolphin Books are celebrating. Next month will launch the very first app…Little Critter: The Trip.

You will be able to take an action-packed car trip with Little Critter, Little Sister, Mom and Dad in which everything imaginable happens—literally—from A to Z, in this fun-filled interactive app! “B is for bad” when the “T is for tire” goes flat! And “L is for lost” when where did the “R is for road” go? Little Critters’ trip is full of humorous ups and downs like the actual road they’re following! It’s up to you and Little Critter to help find the way, fix the car when it breaks down, and play lots of fun “G is for games” with Little Sister to pass the time! Kids learn along with Little Critter as, true to his nature, he cheers you on to scale new heights!

Check back as they will be posting some Little Critter activity sheets for some holiday fun!

  3. My 3 year old daughter loves the Little Critter books. We got her a book with 7 different Little Critter stories in it for Christmas. When she opened it up, she squealed, “Mercer Mayer!” But in her 3 year old voice, it sounds like, “Mersher Mayer!” So cute 🙂

  10. Werde mir wahrscheinlich zu Weihnachten die Basic Version holen.Den Premiumdienst brauch ich nich, weil ich meine Spiele im Laden kaufen werde und somit ist der Mehrspeicher auch sinnlos.Sennsorleiste hab ich schon von meiner Wii und Nindendo Land brauch ich nicht.Somit ist die Basicversion für mich sicher besser geeignet.
