Can you guess what famous author just celebrated their birthday?

Here are a few clues:

  • He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on December 30, 1943.
  • He’s written and illustrated over 300 children’s books.
  • His most famous character appeared in his 1975 book, Just For You.
  • Two of the main character’s favorite pets are a grasshopper and a spider.
  • He’s going to be 69 this year so that means next year is the BIG 70, so we need to start planning a BIG celebration.

Did you guess?

Award-winning American children’s book author and illustrator Mercer Mayer, thats who! And in celebration, Silver Dolphin Books will be unveiling their very first Little Critter App —Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip. The app is being developed right now by Silver Dolphin Books together with the award-winning app developer John R. Sansevere and will be available in late January 2013.

Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip

In Little Critter: The Trip, you will be able to take an action-packed car trip with Little Critter, Little Sister, Mom and Dad in which everything imaginable happens—literally—from A to Z, in this fun-filled interactive app! “B is for bad” when the “T is for tire” goes flat! And “L is for lost” when where did the “R is for road” go? Little Critters’ trip is full of humorous ups and downs like the actual road they’re following! It’s up to you and Little Critter to help find the way, fix the car when it breaks down, and play lots of fun “G is for games” with Little Sister to pass the time! Kids learn along with Little Critter as, true to his nature, he cheers you on to scale new heights!

    I loved the little critter collection when I was little and then I loved reading them to my kids when they were little and I look forward to reading to them to my grand kids one day in the future and if my fiance has his way maybe more kids.

    Richard Scarry’s Busy Kids and Little Critter’s The Trip is available as an app for Android and iOS. That would be so handy to keep your child occupied on a trip or at the doctor’s office!

    They have a whole separate section for books that can be used for homeschooling which I think is pretty neat.
