Character in a whole lot of picture books by originally by Mercer Mayer, put out by Golden Publishing. Some are now co-written by Mayer's family members. In the majority of the books, Little Critter is a male creature of indeterminate species (hence the name, I suppose) who seems to be pre-school-aged and lives with his mother, father, and little sister. "Just Me and My Dad," "Taking Care of Mom," "Just A Mess," and titles like that.

There is now a series of chapter books for slightly older children in which Little Critter has abbreviated his name to L.C. -- the whole series is called "L.C. and the Critter Kids." The pictures of L.C. in standard late-1990s pre-teen clothing on the covers are not nearly as cute as younger illustrations.
