Who lives in Critterville? Join Little Critter on a fun tour around town and find out! Discover where everyone works and plays.
Mayer's cuddly critter takes beginning readers on a tour of his town. The "people" he meets and interacts with include dogs, hippos, bears, cats, alligators, pigs, and rabbits. Of course, the critter's pet frog appears in each picture and takes part in the action. Some of the sights of interest are the post office, the fire station, the police station, the town hall, and the library. Little Critter is his usual lovable, messy selfdropping crumbs as he eats a muffin, squirting mustard on his sister in the diner, and spilling his popcorn in the movie theater. The simple lines of text can be read easily, but most children will be more engrossed in discovering details in Mayer's distinctive cartoon-like illustrations. This is a fun choice for beginning readers from the "I Can Read" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
