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.

not for preschoolers Jun 14, 2008
Got this for my 3 year old's first dentist visit. Horrendous book. A 3 year old doesn't need to know about cavities and shots. too scary!! Plus the illustrations are not nice to look at. I would not recommend this book to anybody.
AWFUL!!! Jan 14, 2008
I work in a Pediatric Dental practice. I ordered this book for my son and for his class, my niece and nephews. I threw them all away b/c they show the needle, which NEVER happens and is one way to get your child to be afraid of going to the dentist. In the end, Little Critter gets a lollipop for being so good, and granted the jar in the background says "Sugar Free", preschool aged kids cannot read. I was very disappointed b/c I love Little Critter, but not a good idea to get your child excited about going to the dentist.
great for 2+ years old preparing for 1st dental visit Oct 19, 2007
I am a dental hygienist and have been looking for a book to recommend to prepare young children for their first dental visit. This book stays away from scarier terms that I have seen in other books, and has a very positive influence.
just going to the dentist Apr 3, 2007
This is a very cute book that is great for little kids getting ready to go to the dentist for the first time. Some of the terms used are a little out of date but, this is an overall great book for little ones.
Just Going to the Dentist Dec 10, 2006
The book "Just Going to the Dentist" is a good book because for me, personally, I enjoyed it because it brought back some of my memories of my first couple of dentist appointments. It really brought out the detail of the anxiety, worry, and curiosity of the dentist back then. This time the young Critter has a dentist appointment, and discovers that the dentist is not as bad as he thought it would be as it was running through his mind.
