Ah, Mr Men and Little Miss, how wonderful you are!

These books made up so much of my childhood. No matter what I would go ahead and pick one up. I worked my way through them all a couple of times. Each one has a wonderful story for the child to engage with, each character being fun to read.

Everyone has a bias for their favourite character, yet every book is delightful.

Scream as you are reading during the beginning of this book...and get quiet as Mr. Noisy learns how to bring his volume down when speaking to others...and you'll be sure to get the point across, " It's SUPER annoying when people talk loudly!"

I liked the book because Mr. Noisy learned to be quiet and I learned to be quiet in the car.

Think I’m right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of “Mr Snow”. Looking at all the covers apart from the latter jogged my memory.

Sadly I remember little about the stories now, despite reading them numerous times during my boyhood, plus watching the Mr Men cartoons more than once.

Reckon the last time I would’ve read these was 1983, though may have returned to them as late as 1985. Although I’ve forgotten almost everything about this title and

This one deserves a stonking great 5 stars, as it managed to speak volumes (pun intended) to my children.

Mr Noisy does what comes naturally to him, and it appears to all little children: makes a lot of noise.

The very act of reading this shoudl be comedy gold to little ones, or am I the only parent who puts on a silly OTT voice?

I may have overdone it slightly though as my throat was very painful afterwards!

Through the story children will earn that if you really want to be heard and listened to th

Synopsis: "Mr. Noisy was a very, very noisy person. For example: when most people sneeze you can hear them from the next room. When Mr. Noisy sneezes, you can hear him from the next country!

The residents of Wobbletown are tired of being shouted at by Mr. Noisy. Can they change his very, very noisy ways?"

My Review: Another okay Mr. Men book, it didn't capture Munchkins attention but that isn't too surprising. I don't understand how Mr. Noisy made the connection to be quiet but it worked for him.

I absolutely loved these Mr Men and Little Miss books. I remember getting them from my granny every week. There was so much from these simple characters, I remember filling my little bookshelf with all these books making sure I had got them all in right order. I wish I still had these books but somehow most of them got lost with many house moves or my mum gave the rest away. If I ever have kids, I will make sure they get the chance to experience these wonderful, colourful books.

Mr. Noisy might as well be my son. Like my son, he is loud from sun-up until sun-down. He is so loud that a town has been named for him (in a way). The town is called Wobbletown because everything wobbles when Mr. Noisy comes to town.

Mr. Noisy likes to stomp. He likes to shout. He also likes to do his shopping daily. Unfortunately the shopkeepers of Wobbletown wish he'd stay home or learn how to be quiet. Can a little reverse psychology do the trick?

Mr. Noisy is noisy! CLUMP CLUMP CLUMP when he walks downstairs! I read this to Andy last night and I thought he was going to rupture something, he was laughing so hard. Hargreaves is one of the few authors who can make asking for a loaf of bread into side-splitting comedy.

The MR. Men books are an English book my mom had when she was younger. She let me read them and each as a different story. This one is about Mr. Nosey. He is completely unable to keep himself out of other people's business. He's always sticking his nose into something or someone.

This book made me laugh. My kids love that I shout while I read it. It doesn't hurt that it can aid in teaching kids to be mindful of those around them and be aware of how their behavior affects others. A great way to start a short conversation about it.

As good now as it was when I first read it back in the 80s. I couldn't help feeling a bit sorry for Mr Noisy though - Mrs Crumb and Mr Bacon were a bit heavy-handed in their approach, I thought. And Mr Noisy's shoes are fantastic :-)

One of the better ones, offering many opportunities for stomping on the floor and other sound affects.

Another Mr Men book I remember from childhood. I remember coveting the Roger Hargreaves style shoes. All the Mr Men seemed to have such fantastic, ornate shoes. Mine seemed so dull.

Nice story I enjoy reading it and what I like more about it is that finally Mr. Noisy learned a great lesson ^_^

The book itself is tiny, yet the story inside is too long! This would be a book to use for a very specific purpose and one-on-one if at all.

The Mister books are a great series of books for Tate right now. A good, manageable length and he can read one book a night.
