One day when Mr Happy goes to meet Little Miss Sunshine he stumbles across Mr Nobody crying big fat wet tears. Can Mr Happy make Mr Nobody see that everybody is somebody?


The Mr Men and Little Miss have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up. Have you met them all?


It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves' son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh, which is probably why his own favourite character is Mr Silly.

Mr Nobody stars in the 47th book in the Mr Men collection. It's the story of Mr Nobody, who is so much of a "Nobody" that is nearly not there at all. Mr Happy finds him crying and with his help and that of a wizard, Mr Nobody finds he is a somebody after all.

The story itself is quite sweet; the notion that everyone matters is an important one. That said, there is too much text for very little ones; there is nearly a full page of writing (on every other page) so it takes a while compared to other Mr Men stories. My children struggled to sit through this and I spent most of the time quickly paraphrasing. There is a part where Mr Nobody sneezes which they love and join in with loudly!

The illustrations are lovely but not as vivid as usual thanks to the fact Mr Nobody is see-through, so there is a lot of black and white pictures or part-pictures.

This book is better suited to older children rather than toddlers. It's a lovely tale but one we're going to save until they're a bit older with a longer attention span.

This one was too long for a Mr men book, had a wizard in with Mr nobody. Bit complicated story for a little one.

We are slowly working our way through the Mr Men series with our little girl. We have been trying to introduce each one periodically so that we can read it for a while before we move on as we will hopefully get more from them that way. That said, none of us are particularly anxious to return to this one as it's a little bit odd. Mr Nobody is a sad little outline, not a full colour picture like the rest of the Mr Men. We know he's sad about it because he's crying. Mr Happy and the Wizard (it's all starting to feel just a little bit trippy now isn't it?) enter the story and basically sort him out. It's oddly unsatisfying and there's no real drama to the story. Some of the Mr Men stories are quite long for little ones and others are a bit boring for everybody - we find you have to read it a few before you find a really satisfying one - but this certainly isn't it. It just leaves you wondering why you bothered reading it in the first place. My daughter put it to one side and said "not that one again" when I suggested giving it another go.
