The person who wrote a review before used lots of fancy words, and I'm sort of worried that people might not understand what he was trying to say, so I'm going to translate: Mr. Noisy is a person who loves to be really loud, and I mean REALLY loud. However, most people don't like being shouted at, so when Mr. Noisy talks to someone, they usually take it the wrong way. Mr. Noisy's loud voice can cause problems, such as this: The butcher and the grocer don't like Mr. Noisy shouting all the time, so they refuse to give him his food until he quiets down. In the end, Mr. Noisy has to learn to be quieter if he's going to get what he wants. However, this is incredibly hard for Mr. Noisy, because it's in his nature to be noisy.

Mr. Nosey is so nosey that he is always putting his nose into other peoples business. This book tells the story of how this can be very annoying to people, and what some people did to teach Mr. Nosey a lesson. Mr. Nosey learned a good lesson and is not so Nosey any more.
Mr. Nosey does not encounter any of the other Mr. Men from the Mr. Men series in this book. He does meet several people from the local town.
Of the Mr. Men books that I have read, I would recommend this one, it it not the best work by Roger Hargreaves, but it is near the top of the list. I would recommend Mr. Tall in addition to this one. If you do buy a Mr. Men book, then you should get a couple because they are very small.

I've bought a few of the Mr. Men books for my son as I grew up reading them when I was his age, growing up in the UK. I find that a lot of the really good children's books are 10, 15, and 30 years old. A lot of the new books are books about nothing. Nobody gets offended but the tree that died to produce a boring inferior work. Anyway....

Mr. Noisy is a really noisy person (a big round red blob with hands, feet and eyes) who is rude to Mr. Butcher and Mrs. Baker (who are an item??;)). They then get together and conspire to change Mr. Noisy's rude and noisy ways by simply pretending they are deaf. After going to bed hungry (and with a little more encouragement) Mr. Noisy changes his brash ways and everyone is happy. Don't you love those happy endings?!

This review is for both Mr. Noisy and Mr. Nosey as for some reason Amazon has the books linked so you cannot write separate reviews.
#1 - Mr. Noisy
If you haven't already guessed from the title of the book and my review, Mr. Noisy likes to shout. Not only that he "clumps" everywhere, very noisily too! Having had enough of this obnoxious behavior, Mrs. Crumb comes up with a suggestion that she shares with Mr. Bacon. The next day, when Mr. Noisy comes to purchase his bread and meat, both Mrs. Crumb and Mr. Bacon pretend that they cannot hear him. Mr. Noisy goes home sad and empty handed. The following day, he starts shouting at them again but then halfway through gains some inspiration and talks quietly and politely. Guess what? The shopkeepers serve him! Not only that, as Mr. Noisy starts to clump back up the hill, he suddenly stops and starts tiptoeing. What fun! A good lesson in manners!

#2 - Mr. Nosey
There is no doubt about it, Mr, Nosey is NOSEY, frequently poking his nose into other people's business. SO, one day the people of Tiddletown, where Mr. Nosey lives, decided to do something about it.

The first day he got paint on the end of his nose, the next day it was a clothes peg. How long was it before Mr. Nosey learned his lesson? Read this delightful book to find out! Contains a valuable lesson written in a humorous way for all kids (and adults) to appreciate.

Thanks, Liz

These "Mr." and "Little Miss" books have delighted me ever since I read them to my kids. Written more to be read aloud, they are perfect for 4- to 9-year-olds with a sense of humor. You can almost hear the author smile as the words prod you to turn to the next page. Of course, the story line is completely silly (long-nosed man gets his nose painted, pinched, etc., by his neighbors to help cure his nosiness), but kids seem to love seeing these goofy people learn, through much slapstick, how to tame their excessive behavior. I only wish the female books were "Ms. This" and "Miss That" instead of "Little Miss." But that's just a wish from Big Ms. Feminist.

I enjoyed the Mr. Men books as a child and was pleased to see they had been republished now that I have a 4 year old son of my own. Mr. Noisy is the best of the bunch, in my mind. It's great fun to get loud with Mr. Noisy and SCREAM REAL LOUD THAT I'D LIKE A PIECE OF MEAT. And it is just as much fun to whisper - something Mr. Noisy tries for once in his life to good result. Get in character and have some great fun reading this book with your kids!

I love this book. My grams used to read it to me when I was little and I bought it for my niece. I am sure I just got a bad book, but half of the one I got was upside-down! I got a refund in a couple days, but it makes me weary from buying another one from them, my luck the next one would be messed up too! haha

I am an elementary teacher and I use these books in my class to supplement our Character Ed program (which isn't the greatest). My students love the Little Miss and Mr. Men books. I have to keep them behind my desk and let them "check them out" like library books or they fight over them. The are excellent to use in a pinch if you have a book that pertains to a problem that has developed in class (especially rudeness or bossiness). It is easy to read the book and have a quick class chat about what is going on. I highly recommend all of the books for anyone who teaches, home schools, or children in general. They are a great asset.
