Little Critter IS a good helper…although not everything goes quite as planned. Whether he's watering the garden (and sprinkling his mother), making the beds (and jumping on them), shopping (he never forgets the candy), or literally vacuuming up the rug, Little Critter lends a hand--in his own special way. Pitching in has never been as entertaining!
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® and Little Monster® series.
