Growing up, the little critter books were some of my favorites. Today, that has not changed. "Just Me and My Cousin" follows little critter through his adventures with his older cousin, and features the traditional family rivalry that so many of us have come to love. This is a perfect book for younger kids to begin to read, as the language is simple and clear.

The cousin in this story is not a very good play mate (kind of a jerk actually). I guess it's a good way to introduce children to the concept of an apology. But we'll see - you can also teach children that actions are louder than words.

This book could be used for a theme on family. Although the cousins have a hard time getting along, in the end it all works out. It could also be used as a prompt for student to answer if they would have forgiven the older cousin or if the older cousin was really sincere in his apology.

I began illustrating books in 1966. Since that time I have published over 300 books. Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid. Now I'm a big kid and I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children. They always remind me of what it was like.

I was born in Arkansas in 1943. Boy, that was a long time ago! It's real fun to be an old kid. Then m
