Each of the stories--"When I Get Bigger" and "When I Grow Up"--focus on the same idea of growing up and what kids imagine that will be like. The first story focuses on Little Critter, the second on his younger sister. We are big fans of Little Critter at our house so I was excited to read these new-to-us stories.

Pairing two classic Mercer Mayer picture books on related topics, this compilation features two related stories about growing up. In the first one, Little Critter imagines all the things he can do and be when he's bigger.

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
