Mr Silly decides to write a book all about himself, but soon realises without including his friends it would be very dull. My daughter found it very funny that he was writing with a carrot - and I had to explain about "old style" pens which required ink pots that we used when I was young! There's a clever nod to World Book Day with each of Mr Silly's friends shown reading a favourite book - suitable for the character (eg Mr Greedy and a cookery book) but also showing a diversity of books (spells, mysteries, chapter book). The book concludes with Mr Silly "building" a house in the shape of the book, with the text on the inside walls - inviting all his friends to visit - so that they're all physically "in" his book! We chatted about being a character "in" a book and what Mr Silly had done!

Perhaps the highest recommendation for the book - on finishing it Sophie said "I could write a book about me, with my friends Evelyn, Emma and Molly in it......." and wandered off to find some paper and pencils. Mission accomplished.

Nostalgia with this one - had forgotten quite how silly and funny the Mr Men are - and Mr Silly is the silliest. 

Loved reading this to Alex age 10 and Gabby age 3. 

The pictures are amazing too.

Great simple storytelling at its best.

Reuben (3 years old) says:
'Mr Silly got all the people in the book. That is so silly!
He is eating a pencil. Ha! Ha!
This is so funny!
Mr Silly is so funny. He has no eyes!'

This was book was great to read with the children. They loved it. Agnes (6 years old) loved reading it to her brother.

As a child I read quite a lot of the Mr. Men and Little Miss book series and now am delighted to share these stories with my children. What's brilliant is there are always fun, new Mr. Men books being made and this is a great example. In this story Mr. Silly decides to write a book all about himself. Quite quickly in the story Mr. Silly realises that he needs to include his friends in his new book as well. He writes about how his friends read their books (our favourite was Mr. Wrong reading literally upside down). We also laughed at Mr. Wrong writing his book with a carrot. The final joke of the book is definitely our favourite but we won't give that away. We highly recommend this fun short story.

Georgie and I loved that this Mr Men book had lots of the Mr Men and Little Miss characters in it.
Georgie liked the big book that Mr Silly made - she would like to live in the book.
As always, the illustrations were great. 
We liked how each character did something that was all about them.

We have had mixed success with reading the Mr Men series to our daughter so I wasn't sure which way it was going to go with this one but she really enjoyed it. I think what appealed to her most was that there were lots of the Mr Men in it, rather than just focusing on one. My daughter liked the character of Mr Silly and how he really does do the silliest things. What was interesting was that she was really interested in the fact that it was Mr Silly writing the book about himself and his friends. She said that he was too silly to write a book!

This is a quick read about Mr Silly writing his book about himself. My children enjoyed this as there were lots of different Mr Men featured and they liked how the story played on being 'in' a book.

This is such a fun book celebrating World Book Day. Mr Silly introduces writing books, buying books, reading books and some of the different books you can find. Leo really enjoyed the bold illustrations, especially Mr Silly keeping his post in the toaster and drinking his toast in a mug. He thought Nonsenseland was very funny too! New and old fans of the Mr Men series will love the characters Mr Silly features in his story.

Another great addition to the Mr Men series, Mr Silly decides to write a book about himself using a carrot for a pen! As usual it contains all the silly things Mr Silly gets up to like buying a book one page at a time. Mr Silly realises he needs to include some of his friends so this book includes some of the favourite Mr Men.  Great story, nice length and very jolly.

A very silly and enjoyable story! My son had been reading the series at school (Y2), so was keen to read this new story created for World Book Day. It has a nice, simple, accessible text and bright illustrations. It was nice that lot of the Mr Men feature in this title, too. The funniest part is where Mr Silly writes with a carrot, though we found the ending a little lame!
