The Mr Men and Little Miss series have been around for a long time, but I never came across them when my children were young. Since that I've seen them here and there, but never read any. Today James borrowed Mr Bump from the library and we loved it. James was particularly delighted with the way Mr Bump eventually found gainful employment

As a first-time reader of any Mr Men books, I was initially surprised at the large amount of text (for the size of the book, that is) on a page, accompanied by...more

MR Bump always bumps into everything.

So I recently went to an art show at the Iam8bit gallery in LA, the whole show was dedicated to the Mr. Men, Little Miss, collection. The art was great, but even better, they had the whole collection of these books for sale. While scanning over these books that I hadn't read in a decade, I immediately was drawn to "Mr. Bump". I knew it was my childhood favorite, but wasn't sure why. So I bought it and re-read it. What an amazing book. SImple. Short, but for some reason, super appealing. I love t...more
Mr Bump I friendly and kind but can't help his habit of bumping into things if there is anything to bump into he will! These things make it hard to find a job but he finds one that suits him perfectly eventually.

I thought it was a bit childish.
Poor Mr Bump!

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 read the Mr. men and LIttle Miss books when I was a kid, but a recent trip to London rekindled my love of this classic series. Being an absolute klutz myself , I can relate to Mr. Bump in a number of ways. His adventures in bumping into things and accidentally breaking things gives me yet another way to have a sense of humor about my own clumsiness.

My favourite Mr. Man when i was a child - i even had a soft toy with removable bandages that i loved!
this was written before forest gump, and the fact that the names rhyme is certainly no coincidence. unlike with gump, the success he finds through his inability is much more true to life. and yet we call mr. bump a kid's book.
I haven't seen too many of this series here in the states but before I left England I remember absolutley loving this series. I also recall this being one of the series my mother read to me early on.
Very good story, poor Mr. Bump, bad luck he suffered but he didn't cried over the incidents that happened, he thought very wise and the result was wonderful. I like it ^_^

Oh, poor Mr. Bump. He's always bumping into things and having little accidents. For instance. He bumps into a pole and walks into a large hole.
Jack Kirby and the X-man
X-man is still a little young for the moral - but loves the loud exclaims of BUMP! and CRASH! throughout this book.
Mr. Bump is very accident prone. His dream job awaits him one day, he just has to find his path to it. Apples beware!
Mr Bump's life is very sad because he bumps into everything. Andy laughs every time Mr. Bump knocks into another item.
My son enjoyed me reading this book to him because like Mr. Bump my son tends to have many accidents.
These books are always fun. I enjoyed them when I was a kid and my son definitely enjoys them as well.

Read at Powell's books in Portland for nostalgic purposes as I had some of these toys as a kid.
All the Mr Men books are funny. (just read it again because I liked it so much)
Great memories from my childhood. The icelandic edition is even funnier!
Conquering Dinner
A story with a nice message: everybody has a purpose.
