“Mayer's Little Critter books are my go-to titles when people don't know what picture books they're looking for. Many of them exclaim that they remember and love these books, and the rest fall in love on the spot. Little Critter has been the catalyst to bring many children to reading, and this boxed set of six of his favorite adventures makes the perfect gift.”

About the Author
After illustrating others' picture books, Mercer Mayer created his first truly original work with "A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog" (The Dial Press, 1967), followed a year later by his classic picture book "There's a Nightmare in My Closet." In 1976, he joined Golden Publishing and soon began publishing his phenomenally successful "Little Critter"(R) and "Little Monster"(R) series.
