I chanced upon these books at Booksale early this year when SM Megamall was having a mall-wide sale. I fell in love with the titles and the illustrations, and I thought they were perfect for my little boy. I bought each Mr. Men book for only Php15.00, and because they were so cheap, I was inclined to buy a lot. Unfortunately, there were only a few titles available then.
Mr. Men is a series of children’s books written by Roger Hargreaves. The Mr. Men series started in 1971. The characters in the books have personalities and physical characteristics based on their names. For example, Mr. Funny is a funny character who lives in a funny house, does funny things and drives a funny car.
Currently, my son has 7 Mr. Men books, namely: Mr. Happy, Mr. Forgetful, Mr. Sneeze, Mr. Mischief, Mr. Lazy, Mr. Noisy and Mr. Funny. I love reading these books to my son at bedtime, and he loves listening to these stories. My son likes the colorful characters and their stories, and I like the moral lessons conveyed in the stories. I intend to buy the entire set of Mr. Men books for my boy, that is, if Booksale has new Mr. Men books right now. There is also a “Little Miss” series for young girls, by the way.
