More About Mercer Mayer
Mercer Mayer began writing and illustrating children's books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator's books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters. "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. They always help remind me of what it was like." Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Mercer Mayer spent his childhood hunting lizards and snakes in the swamps near his home. During his teenage years, he attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He later received additional training at the Art Students League in New York City. Upon completion of his studies, he set out with pen and ink to write and illustrate a collection of children's books, reflecting many of the adventures he experienced as a child. In 2007, Mr. Mayer was commissioned by Laura Bush to create the artwork used for the National Book Festival held on September 29 on the National Mall. He was an honored guest to the event, giving a demonstration and autographing hundreds of books for fans who attended.
Mercer Mayer currently resides in the state of Connecticut. Mercer Mayer was born in 1943.

Still one of my favorites Feb 20, 2008
I'm now in my late 20's and still love this book. In looking to buy books and CDs for a friend's child's first birthday, I had to buy this book for them to hold on to for later.
It is perfect in every way.
Beautiful Mother/Child book Jan 22, 2007
A favourite book from my childhood, read almost everyday with my Mum and now relived again. Beautiful illustrations!
The Beginning of a Legacy Dec 3, 2006
"Just for Yu (You)" is the begining of the "Little Critter" series, a truly iconic series in the world of children's picture books. In this story, Little Critter wants to do something special, just for his Mom. But things always seem to go wrong or something gets in his way. It's just not working out. He tries carry the groceries, but the paper bag (heh --- you don't ever seem to see those anymore) breaks. He tries to put away the dishes, but he slips on the wet floor.
"Just for Yu (You)" is a pleasing picture book that I think just about anyone can identify with. Little Critter is both cute and amusing in his attempts to do something nice for his Mom. The style of illustration in this earlier book is somewhat different from what's seen in the later stories --- somewhat less polished as such. It's a charming look back at the origins of a favorite series.
My favorite book as a child Dec 31, 2005
I loved this book when I was little. It was the very first book I could ever read on my own, too. I loved it so much, in fact, that it was the first book I bought for my son. He is now 3 years old and loves it, too. The thing that really makes me smile about this little critter book, in particular, is that it is truly funny for a preschooler. The eggs sliding down the stove, the bouncy bed, the overfilled bath tub...these made me laugh when I was a kid and they make my son laugh now. The ending always gets me a kiss, too, which all mommies love.
HIGHLY recommend. I would give it ten stars if I could. My all-time favorite.
this was one of my childhood favorites!! Nov 4, 2005
This was one of the few books I remember as a child and now love to read to my own 4yr old daughter. This one and All By Myself, Just Go To Bed and Just a Toy are, in my opinion, the best Little Critter books! Enjoy!
