#win Little Critters Book Signed (US/CAN)

Mercer Mayer has published over 300 books using a wide range of illustrative styles, although he is probably best known for his Little Critter® and Little Monster series of books. When Mayer drew from his own childhood experiences in creating stories, he struck a chord with children and parents alike.

 In February 2013, Silver Dolphin Books will be unveiling their very first app about Little Critter—Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip.

 

 Little Critter: The Trip (app icon)

The app is being developed right now by Silver Dolphin Books together with the award-winning app developer John R. Sansevere. Here’s a sneak peak at one of the scenes from the app:

 critters

Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter appeals to young readers who identify with his first-person narration of his thoughts, feelings, ideas and inspirations as he navigates the challenges of childhood. Life in Critterville mirrors the everyday experiences of children everywhere. Little Critter and his best friends Tiger and Gator love to play sports, read comics, ride skateboards and go on school field trips, out for pizza, and to the movies! And just like real-life kids, they deal with challenges, help their friends, love their pets and get annoyed by their younger siblings while striving for independence and a better understanding of their world.

 

Kids empathize with Little Critter and the situations he finds himself in that are so familiar to them, and laugh along at his heart-warming and ever hopeful efforts to negotiate the world. Little Critter shows that it’s all right to fail and try again, and to keep trying until you get it right. And just as importantly, have fun and laugh at themselves in the process, which is perhaps the biggest secret of all!

 

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! “is for bad” when the “is for tire” goes flat! And “is for lost” when where did the “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 “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!
