I grew up with these fun little books. I loved them so much, I used to carry at least one round with me wherever I went. It's nice to see that the Mr Men series is still around for little kids and their parents to enjoy.
Mr Bump is an accident prone guy. He's always breaking things or getting himself stuck. He can't get a job because he's always getting into trouble. He doesn't mean to, but he tends to have accidents whether he likes it or not. Will he find the job that's right for him?
The book has very colourful, cute illustrations. I remember as a kid thinking that even though Mr Bump had lots of accidents, he still had a nice, friendly town to live in. Roger Hargreaves' writing is easy for little kids to understand, while still often witty for the grown-up reader reading it to them. In a way, kids might be able to relate to Mr Bump, having lots of accidents and getting in trouble, even though he doesn't mean to.
I'd recommend this for any young children. If they enjoyed this book even half as much as I did when I was little, then it will have been well worth the purchase.

My favorite of all the Mr. Men books! I love how Mr. Bump loses job after job because of his stumbling, bumbling nature. He simply bumps into everything! I suppose I love him best, because I can relate, being both clumsy and still not knowing "what I want to be when I grow up." Can you think of a job he would be suitable for? He eventually does find the perfect job, but I won't tell you what it is...

Really great for kids. I've seen too much analysis, too deep, about these books. My three daughters LOVED the stories, got great enjoymemt as well as learning a little reading. What more can you ask for?

The Mr. Men books are the only books my 7-year old loves to read! We ended up buying the entire collection and he has literally spent days with them - this from the kid who had to be bribed to read before.

This is my son's FAVORITE "Mr" book! I was excited to find these old books from my childhood on Amazon and have the chance to share them with my kids! Because they are paperback, they're easy to take with us for rides in the car and on trips. The stories are longer than what you might expect out of a "children's" book, with some words that may be out of the vocabulary of the intended audience, but since you don't want the stories to end it doesn't matter! Happy with my purchase!

One of the delightful books in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Bump is one of the best. His trials and tribulations come about from his seemingly innate tendency to get into accidents. Bumping into anything and everything in his way! Although this problem causes him some problems in finding a job, after a not-so-quiet vacation to the beach, Mr. Bump realizes the solution to his job problem. To find out his ideal job you'll just have to read the book yourself. Great for kids and for kids at heart as are all the Mr. Men books!

Mr. Bump has a problem. He is always getting into accidents,bumping into anything and everything in his way! Although his bumpingdilemma causes him lots of problems in holding a job, after a not-so-bump-free vacation Mr. Bump realizes the perfect job for him. You'll have to read the book to find out Mr. Bump's job niche. This a clever little book great for all ages to teach the lesson that there's a bright side to every situation.

If you have an accident-prone person in your life, this is the perfect gift. Poor Mr. Bump is always bumping into everything, and he can't keep a job because he is always breaking things. The story of all the many jobs he has had is very amusing, and you will love the job he discovers he would be best at in the end. Mr. Men and Little Miss books are fun for kids of all ages.
