This book is very interesting for everybody, children and adults. In fact, it was written for kids, and I read it, when I was little. But from time to time, I read it again, and I always find something interesting in Hargreaves' books. Mr. Mean contains a lot of funny moments, but it also teaches children a lesson, not to be mean, but spend their money, and help out others around them, that is less fortunate people. The author's presentation of the characters is done in a rather funny way. I esp...more

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.

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. Mean. He is mean to everyone and everything. He is a sour puse who never has fun.

Sorry, this was just a Mr. Men version of a classic cautionary tale. Ok, 2.5 stars because of the laugh at the end. Only for completists, I think.
Mr. Mean is a variation on A Christmas Carol. He's a miser who is shown the error of his ways and begins to be lavish with his millions.
i didn't like the ending much. but the fact that he sends lumps of coal for xmas presents is great (i'm considering doing that myself).
After what the wizard did to him to teach him a lesson I'm sure he stopped being so meanie.
