We first tried reading the Mr Men books when my daughter was about 2, but she wasn't that bothered about them then. However, she's now 3 and a half and just recently she can't get enough of them. I think the illustrations are too simple to keep younger children engaged, but now she is older, our daughter really appreciates the humorous pictures and thinks the different characters are very funny. She also loves going through the Mr Men on the back of the book and naming all the characters!Read moreLess
"I have heard complaints (on MN!) of the language in…"
I have heard complaints (on MN!) of the language in these books, but I rather like it. I like drawling about Mr Tickle's "extraordinarily long arms", and stopping. Very abruptly. For emphasis.
But it has to be the original Mr Men stories. Not Hargreaves fils. And I'm not mad on the Little Misses either...Read moreLess

These are a great range of books, which my 10 week old babies love! They are easy to read, with lovely colourful pictures and are fun for the parents too! The children will really enjoy reading these when they are old enough. The language is repetitive, which is perfect for learning to read.Read moreLess

"9/10. My 2 yr old loves the large editions…"
9/10. My 2 yr old loves the large editions (I think only 4 available at the moment). A good read and easy to follow with the excellent drawings. The only minor thing some may object to is, due to age of these classics, some may not be PC enough for everyone but I'm a believer that we've gone way to far with out PC anyway so not an issue for us. Enjoy!!!Read moreLess
