Item description for Merry Christmas, Mom and Dad (Little Critter) (Look-Look) by Mercer Mayer...
Overview Trying to be good for Christmas without bungling everything up is difficult.
Publishers Description Mercer Mayer's very popular character stars in a getting-ready-for-Christmas picture book. Little Critter approaches Christmas with the intention of being a good helper. When he makes a mistake, he has a logical explanation. He couldn't wrap the Christmas package because the tape got too sticky. He couldn't buy his parents a present because there were too many toys to look at. He couldn't put up the tree lights because they were just too tangled. Little Critter means well, but every funny illustration shows him as tangled up as the Christmas lights.

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.

Cute book! Oct 11, 2006
This is a pretty cute book. This one doesn't have the questionable content that some of his other books in this series, so if you're concerned about that, you won't have to with this one. The critter is trying his best to do things to wish his mom and dad Merry Christmas, but things just seem to go wrong. He gets all wrapped up in the tape when wrapping a gift, tangled in the lights when trying to get them out, and breaking all the bulbs for the tree. It reminds you of a little booklet that a child would write for school on his Christmas at home. It's cute, and captures the heart of a child at Christmas when trying to give his parents that special gift. I recommend this Mayer book.
A cute review about a Little critter Dec 17, 2003
This book was about a little critter that just wanted to make this christmas the BEST one ever for his mom then he went to sleep and santa came that night and he got every thing he wanted even to make his mom happy he even brought all the presents up the stairs so his mom wouldnt have to get out of bed so in the end it was the BEST christmas ever.
Merry Christmas Mom and Dad Sep 23, 2003
I loved this book I thought it was so cute!! I loved how Little Critter wanted to get his mom and dad Christmas gifts and no matter what he tried it didn't work out! I'm not between the ages of 4-8 but I thought it was so cute. It could detach kids the lesson of giving, well at least trying to give, but just the way Little Critter wanted to give was cute. Like how he wanted to make Christmas cookies but he kept eating them, or how he didn't want to wake up his parents Christmas morning so he brought all his gifts up stairs to show his parents. Any kids would love this book, I loved it when I was little and I still do! It's a great book. I would recommend it to everyone!
Adorable! Dec 15, 2001
I find this story very cute and funny, I think it is adorable how the little boy tries to do all good things for his parents and he just has the hardest time doing them. I think all children could relate to this story because when Christmas time comes around they want to do all they can because they know Santa is watching and they have to especially good. I would reccomend this book to all ages because I think they would find it cute just as I did.
Very Cute Book! Dec 13, 2001
This is a very cute book about how a young critter is trying to help his parents do things but really just messes them up. The vritter is trying to do all kinds of christmas chores all by himself just to prove that he is a big boy. He even put the star on his cristmas tree all by HIMSELF, but his dad had him. This is a very good book and it will get you in the mood for christmas and put a smile on your face!
