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.

I loved these books as a kid. I read the few I still have to my nieces I wish I had more. This one is a fun little book about little miss splendid who thinks she is above everything until she is caught out in the rain and taught a little lesson by mother nature.

What a little miss Bitch...

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 tried to force these books on my own children as I'd loved the Mr Men books as a child and was miffed that there were no women until I was too old to want them. Maybe I just tried too hard, or maybe there are more books available to children these days than I had.

I don't actually remember what this is about, but I do know that I called a girl I went to school with Little Miss Splendid with my family. We all still call her that 25 years later!

I absolutely LOVED these Little Miss/Mr. books when I was small, they are just adorable! I remember collecting the books and the figurines from the Arby's happy meals, what a deal :)

Book #46 for 2014

This tiny book was really quite pointless, to the point of being annoying. At least it was short and quick, but I feel like 1 star is being generous.

I think I read every single one of these books as a youngster. They're pretty awesome. I live my life by the lessons learned in them. Mostly.

Ah, it was so hard to like this little miss, I wish if she can learn some good manners, it wont't hurt, will it?

I get the feeling Little Miss Splendid did not learn the errors of her snooty ways.
