A tried and tested pre-home time favourite, especially for the Early Years. From the timeless collection by Roger Hargreaves, ‘Mr Funny’ is just one of the superb Mr Men books which pupils cannot get enough of.
The protagonist certainly lives up to his name, as one of the silliest Mr Men characters by definition; his antics will certainly have pupils in stitches. Mr Funny operates in a hilariously ridiculous way, with his breakfast of a “daisy sandwich” and “glass of toast” and his shoe-shaped c

My 4 year old son and I, just had a blast reading this for our bedtime story. We laughed more than the Zoo animals. :)

My little brother went through a Mr. Men phase when we were younger. Three years his senior I was a bit beyond the reading level but I found the look, both the size and simple, colorful illustrations appealing. Since that time, I have held a soft spot in my heart for this popular children's series. It wasn't until I read Mr. Funny that I realized I don't think I ever actually perused the text of his collection. Unfortunately this makes me impression of the story somewhat tainted because, as an a ...more

Mr. Funny is one of the more surreal of the Mr. Men books. Mr. Funny lives a very odd life. His house is a tea pot. He drinks toast for breakfast and drives around town in a shoe. As with many of the Mr. Men books, the story follows Mr. Funny through the course of a day, starting with breakfast and going through the course of a day, usually with a trip into town.

Mr. Funny goes to the zoo where he is called into service to entertain a bunch of animals suffering from colds. Here is where the book

Not the finest Mr Men book - although at least Mr Funny goes for a drive rather than a walk, a major difference in plot development!

It does teach kids that laughter is the best medicine, and that perhaps animals aren't all overjoyed to be incarcerated in zoos.

Given the title, this book had so much potential, yet was ultimately slightly disappointing. There are far better Mr Men books out there.

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.

This one and Mr. Mischief are my son's favorites in this series. I actually remember reading these to my little brother when he was small. (His favorite was Mr. Silly!)

Whatever land Mr Funny lives in, they have set the bar very low in regards to humor. The characters crack up uncontrollably when Mr funny makes faces at them. I think there would actually be some laughing related deaths if a comedian with even a smidge of talent showed up in that town.

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

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 this whole series as a kid, mom had a friend from England who brought them over whenever Stateside. I have quite a few at the moment, rather than list them all I will just blanket comment here. These are such simple and fun little characters that while not remembering details, always brings a smile to my face when I see them again!

Oh so funny... well according to little miss who now seems to be basing her jokes on this sort of funny. This is actually one of the better Mr Men I've read recently although Mr Quite Amusing is too big to fit on the cover!

When very tiny Luke used to call him "Ha Man" because he had a little battery operated Mr Funny who chortled happily when you bashed his hat. Reading the story with Ha Man to hand was fun, but this isn't a top-notch Mr Men story otherwise.

Can Mr. Funny cheer up the zoo animals?

Cute. He reminds me of my brother-in-law.

Mr Funny lives in a teapot and drives a shoe. Sometimes he eats a daisy sandwich and drinks a glass of toast. He's so funny that he visits the zoo to cheer up depressed animals.
