This book i bought it for my little boy since i read it to him before he goes to bed.
Andrea Post
Most of the Mr. Men books have other Mr. Men in them, but this book only has Mr. Strong, a farmer, and a couple people that he meets in the town.
Steven M. Stedman
Yes, he is VERY strong, and as a result, he took his door off the hinges, and unintentionally causes damage elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
What a triumph it is, this Nietzschean parable of the Superman. Mr Strong's very being brims with the Will To Power, for which his physical strength is not a delicate metaphor. He hammers a nail into walls with his finger, he ties a knot in an iron bar.

Furthermore, he manifests this sheer force and charisma often quite despite himself. He tears a door off its hinges totally by accident, and barely notices as a bus is written off in collision with him. The symbolism of both of these events is important. The incident with the door makes explicit that it is the world around Mr Strong that must change - not he - however violent this birth of the new. It is equally significant that Mr Strong's own inattentiveness to road safety causes the crash - he cannot help but exist above the social rules that govern the majority, beyond Good and Evil.

This is not to say that Mr Strong ever uses his innate superiority to do wrong - he is every bit as good an egg as those which form his principal diet. One feels he would be just as horrified as Nietzsche himself was by the anti-Semitism of Wagner.

Whatever the case, destiny calls the Superman. And with a fire in a field he yanks a barn from its foundations (a clever metaphor for the dramatic social change brought about by iconoclasts such as he). He fills it with water, empties it upon the chaotic inferno, dousing its flames with his might. Without so much as a second thought, he seizes his moment in history.

Thus sprach Zarathustra.

I love Mr. Strong's story because it shows the good and the bad of his special ability. Yes, he is VERY strong, and as a result, he took his door off the hinges, and unintentionally causes damage elsewhere.

However, his super-strength comes in handy, and he does some very impressive things to save a burning cornfield. His reward? Eggs! Perfect, since he eats so many eggs every day - most likely for the protein.

I always thought of this book as a story about doing the best with what you have. I loved them as a kid in the 70s, and I love reading them to my son even more.

Another favorite of ours is Mr. Bump (Mr. Men and Little Miss). Each book shows all the Mr. Mens on the back, so you can decide what you would like to look for next.

Finally now in my mid-thirties I get to read Mr. Strong for the first time. What a beautiful little tale. If you're a Roger Hargreaves fan, you've read other Mr. Men titles and you're familiar with his writing style, I'm pretty sure you'll guess - just like I did - what kind of adversities Mr. Strong will face in his everyday life, given his extraordinary strength.

Fabulous! Love them! My three daughters loved them 30 years ago. My granddaughters love them now.
I've seen a bunch of intellectual reviews decrying this product. They are totally missing the point.
My take is simple: The book is just a tool and it's up to you how you use it. Sit with your child, read from the story page making up your own words, appropriate for your particular child, while you show them the lovely friendly pictures. The kids just l-o-v-e to look and listen. When my (32 yrs) daughter opened Mr. Tickle last week she immediately recalled the page with the choc chip cookie and the page with a tickling arm coming around the corner.
I just sat reading to my 11-week granddaughter and she just so much loved the pictures, never taking her eyes from them while I blathered my own fun stories to her.
These books give delight, little children love them. Give them for fun.

This is one of my favorite stories...but it became misplaced when we moved. I went to Amazon to order the stories that I was missing (I use these books in a preschool math program) and was please that they were readily available....but with all of the extra fees the book which retails for around $3.00....ended up costing from $8 to $11 dollars.
