I know well these wonderful little books, as well as the Little Miss series too. They're just the right size for little hands to hold. The illustrations are brightly coloured and funny. They're great for early readers and fun for adults too. They are written in the UK, so an occasional explanation for certain words maybe necessary, but doesn't detract from the stories?
Because it is very very nice. The book is about mr happy and mr birthday. Then mr birthday doesnt know whose birthday it will be. He goes to mr happy's house and mr happy says to come later and when he goes mr happy says "it's your birthday!!!"
An excellent little book for reading and re-reading with your kids. Haven't had this much fun with 30 square pages since I was 8! The Mr. Men and Little Miss series has been such an inspiration to my professional life that it was a joy to relive the fun with my young cousins. -Zac Stanley
This book was just perfect for a five-year old boy's birthday. It is a smaller paperback book, so don't expect something that a younger child could enjoy. Another older child learning to read would have a perfect chance with this book.
