A propos de l'auteur

Mercer Mayer was born December 30, 1943 in Little Rock Arkansas. While attending school at the Honolulu Museum of Art, Mayer decided to enter the field of children's book illustration. He created a portfolio of sketches and peddled them wherever he could. He moved to New York City in 1964, pursuing afficher plus further instruction at the Art Students League of New York, where he met an artist named Marianna who became his first wife. He soon created a new portfolio and with these new sketches persuaded editors at Dial Press and Harper & Row to give him some illustration work. Mayer published his first book, A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog, at Dial Press in 1967. It was notable for being a completely wordless picture book one that tells its story entirely with pictures. Mayer was one of the first illustrators to be credited for using this format. Five more books in this series were to follow. Mayer joined Golden Publishing, creators of Little Golden Books, in 1976. Through them he has sold his "Little Critter" and "Little Monster" series, which are popular with beginning readers. His title Just Me and My Dad made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012. In 2015, his title Little Critter: Just a Little Love, also made the list. His holiday book, Merry Christmas Mom and Dad, is also a bestseller. (Bowker Author Biography) afficher moins

Il est sympa ce livre avec ses dessins rétro… L’idée du cauchemar que l’on finit par apprivoiser parce que finalement qui a le plus peur, le petit garçon ou bien le gros monstre tout moche à pois verts que personne n’aime ?
Il y a peu à lire, mais peut-être beaucoup à penser et à débattre. Un bon livre pour accompagner son enfant dans une première lecture autonome puis accompagnée, et une idée à garder dans un coin de sa tête pour une lecture suivie en classe, avec de jolis débats en perspective avec des jeunes lecteurs pour un début de CE1 qui aimerait se faire peur.… (plus d'informations)
