“Mayer's Little Critter books are my go-to titles when people don't know what picture books they're looking for. Many of them exclaim that they remember and love these books, and the rest fall in love on the spot. Little Critter has been the catalyst to bring many children to reading, and this boxed set of six of his favorite adventures makes the perfect gift.”
