Meet Mercer Mayer:
His Biography: https://www.littlecritter.com/about_mercer_mayer2.html
I began illustrating books in 1966. Since that time I have published over 300 books. Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid. Now I'm a big kid and 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. Several of my books have been translated into other languages like Spanish, German, French and Japanese. And, I have my own website gallery.
I was born in Arkansas in 1943. Boy, that was a long time ago! It's real fun to be an old kid. When I was thirteen years old, my parents and my sister and I moved to Hawaii. After high school, I went to Honolulu Academy of Arts. Then, I went to New York City and the Art Students League. A few years later, I began writing children's books. Then I moved to New England. My wife, Gina, and I write the Little Critter stories together.---from https://www.littlecritter.com/about_mercer_mayer2.html
