Here's a few clues to whose birthday we are celebrating.
- He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on December 30, 1943.
- He’s written and illustrated over 300 children’s books.
- His most famous character appeared in his 1975 book, Just For You.
- Two of the main character's favorite pets are a grasshopper and a spider.
- He’s going to be 69 this year so that means next year is the BIG 70.
About - Mercer Mayer has published over 300 books using a wide range of illustrative styles, although he is probably best known for his Little Critter® and Little Monster series of books. When Mayer drew from his own childhood experiences in creating stories, he struck a chord with children and parents alike.
“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."
To Celebrate his birthday, Silver Dolphin Books is releasing the very first My Little Critter app - Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip.
In 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!
