Professor Wormbog Mercer Mayer Kids Book


Mercer Mayer Review and Giveaway

Since 1966, award-winning author Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating fantastical children’s picture books and has personally penned more than 300 titles to date. For 2011 his book Professor Wormbog in Search for the Zipperump-a-Zoo -- which was originally published in 1976 -- was reintroduced and is currently available in hard cover as well as e-Book formats. This particular title is the same original classic story that launched Mayer's renowned Little Monster Series that has sold millions of copies.

Like his other titles, Professor Wormbog was born out of the author's personal experiences growing up in Arkansas. As always, Mayer's animal characters in this book are as monster ugly as they are approachable and charming.  In fact with his illustrative style, it's no surprise that this story and many others he's written -- such as the Little Critter series -- are widely regarded as classics for three generations and counting.  Not only are Mayer's books lots of fun to read, each has valuable life lessons that help children who read them to develop socialization and language skills within a creative story-telling context.
