Beloved Author's Birthday!!

On December 30, American award-winning author Mercer Mayer will celebrate his 69th birthday.  He has written and illustrated over 300 children's books, and his best known character appeared in the 1975 book, "Just For You."  He is best known for his "Little Critter" and "Little Monster" series of books.

Says Mercer about his books, "Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid.  Now that I'm a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children and grandchildren.  They always remind me of what it is like to be little."

In honor of Mr. Mercer's birthday, Silver Dolphin Books are offering a free autographed copy of "Snowball Soup" for one of my readers!!!  Snowball Soup is a “My First I Can Read” book for readers ages 4 and up (paperback).  A fun winter-themed book that ties so well into this festive time of year—join Little Critter, Little Sister, and Dog as they make their new friend the snowman a tasty treat—Snowball soup! 
PLUS, in January, they are releasing their very first app about Little Critter - Mercer Mayer's Little Critter: The Trip.  The app is being developed by Silver Dolphin Books, together with award-winning app-developer John R. Sansevere.  

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!

For more information about the coming app, Littler Critter: The Trip, check out the Silver Dolphins Book blog, where you can sign up for their newsletter to keep up to date on the latest information.
