5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of great little books, December 2, 2011

This review is from: Mr. Men 40th Anniversary Box Set (Hardcover)
Roger Hargreaves' Mr. Men are a classic series of little children's books from England. This set contains some of the best - Mr. Tickle, Mr. Bump, Mr. Greedy, Mr. Messy etc. - and they're nicely packaged as hardbacks making them much more durable than the more common thin paperbacks. These are a great read. Wonderful bedtime stories (each is a short book, read in just a few minutes) and the illustrations are adorable and entertaining. The stories themselves are well paced, include good use of repetitive phrases (these are great to read aloud) that kids love, and are often amusing (Mr. Greedy being forced to eat a literally giant-sized plate of food is nicely twisted).

Overall, this is a great set of books. The hardback covers really add to the durability and given that the paperbacks go for $3 to $4 each, a set of 10 for around $20 is an excellent deal. These would make an excellent gift for a baby shower or for any young child.
