I absolutely love these books i think they're brilliant and almost everyone has read or come across one of these books. This one in particular is about a character called Mr Worry who worries about everything. For example, he worries when it rains in case his roof leaks, he worries if it doesn't rain because his plants in the garden may die. Throughout the book Mr Worry worries about 12 different things and a wizard tells him to write everything down so that he wont worry about anything anymore. ...more

A great Mr Men story about how we can worry about everything but in the end, it makes life a bit miserable! Fun story and great illustrations as always.

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
A story for our troubled times: so many things to worry about and so little time to do it in.

Mr Worry encapsulates the zeitgeist and teaches us how to tackle our irrational fears, although he does have a friendly wizard to help him. Harry Potter should be doing more community work like this!

A lesson in life laid bare here: stop your worrying and enjoy life. Which seems slightly strange for a children's book - my children never seem to have too many worries, so perhaps the message is aimed more a

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.
I already enjoy it when Mommy reads the Mr. Men books to me, the pictures are so funny.
Mr. Worry learns not to worry so much with a little help from a wizard.
the "Mr." books are great, this one helped me be the care free guy I am today.

One of the most profound Mr Men books in the series.
Fun read-aloud series - with a moral.
Good ending. So true.
Really nice one.
