3.0 out of 5 stars Mr men books, December 30, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mr. Men 40th Anniversary Box Set (Hardcover)
The books themselves are great but the description is misleading. Its not Mr and Miss books, its just the Mr books so for my daughter that was a bit of a letdown.

Your daughter can only enjoy books about female cartoon characters?

She said the description is misleading not that her daughter can only enjoy female cartoon characters. If you are going to respond to reviews please make it worth while.....

No, she said her daughter was disappointed that there were only Mr. Men books. She couldn't have been disappointed that it was lacking a specific title, because the description doesn't even list the individual titles - a shortcoming I fixed with my own review, since nobody else (including "Dee") could be bothered to do it.

The description isn't misleading; the series as a whole is called Mr. Men and Little Miss. The title of THIS set of books is "Mr. Men 40th Anniversary Box Set". For comparison, a set of Little Miss books is The Lovable Little Misses (Mr. Men and Little Miss). That set is nothing but Little Miss books, yet it is still part of the "Mr. Men and Little Miss" series, and nobody there is complaining that their sons are disappointed because they thought it contained Mr. Men books. If reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, that's not the fault of the books. It's also not the fault of the books if you raise your child in such rigid gender roles that they can't enjoy good books about male characters.

Wow. Overkill much? Maybe they were just hoping for a mix. I don't think that a little girl who is disappointed that ALL 10 of her new books only feature male leads and no girls is a sign of rigid gender roles. Sounds natural to me.

I was also under the mistaken impression that the series was simply the "Mister Men" series and not the Mr. Men and Little Miss series. Afterall, the first Little Miss book wasn't published until 10 years into the series!
So this review would be helpful to anyone that was under the same mistaken impression. And while your review with the book titles is very helpful, reviews are NOT required reading or an official part of the product description.
