Wonderful book my three year old know it word for word. Trouble is if in the bakery he shouts "I WOULD LIKE A LOAF OF BREAD PLEASE!" Still a classic book you really can't go wrong. We have almost got all of them now a timeless collection that children up to 7 or 8 will enjoy, as do I.

Hargreeves' beautifully crafted tale of behavioural modification to fit in with society's expectations and intolerance of unconventional social interaction forces us to hold a mirror up to our own prejudices, and, at the same time, places us in the shoes of an outsider, shoes I'm sure many of us know all too well.

The title character, the stentaurian 'Mr Noisy', is faced with a stark choice: be himself and face being ostracised by society at large, or become more like the masses, and lose his individuality into the bargain.

Hargreeves' writing is sharp, uncluttered, and to the point. His depicition of society and its strict expectations for 'normal' behaviour brings up interesting metaphysical debates; such as just what is "normal", and just how far we should go in order to fit in.

I would rate this book 5/5, and on a par with Mr Tickle, a book about a serial-groper and his struggle with his unwholsome urges, and much better than 'Run, Spot, Run'.

Children may also find this book interesting.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? All the Mr Men and Little Misses books are just so much fun! My 3 years old constantly ask to have them read for her and knows several of them by heart. They are funny, interesting, just the right length for bed time reading. PERFECT!

Classic story from the Mr Men series which follows a day in the life of the insufferably yet lovable chaos and noise of the world that is Mr noisy.
A definite recommendation for those of you who are fed up with todays sentimentality when reading with young children.

My son loves me reading this one to him, especially as I do all the clumping with my feet and make all the noisy noises for him and we then do the quiet bits when Mr. Noisy learns his lesson, great for teaching a 2 year old the difference between loud and quiet.

If you haven't already guessed from the title of the book and my review, Mr. Noisy likes to shout. Not only that he "clumps" everywhere, very noisily too! Having had enough of this obnoxious behavior, Mrs. Crumb comes up with a suggestion that she shares with Mr. Bacon. The next day, when Mr. Noisy comes to purchase his bread and meat, both Mrs. Crumb and Mr. Bacon pretend that they cannot hear him. Mr. Noisy goes home sad and empty handed. The following day, he starts shouting at them again but then halfway through gains some inspiration and talks quietly and politely. Guess what? The shopkeepers serve him! Not only that, as Mr. Noisy starts to clump back up the hill, he suddenly stops and starts tiptoeing. What fun!

A good lesson in manners!

My son (almost 3 years) likes this book very much and every time, when I choose it for reading, he starts to repeat: 'I want to have a piece of meat'! :-) It is enjoyable reading for small kids with the good vocabulary!

I'm not a massive Mr Men fan, but this book is ok. It's a bit noisy to read at bedtime because you find yourself being NOISY with all the capital letters in the book. It's a nice story though, and the townspeople manage to get Mr Noisy to quiet down a litte.

Bought this for my 4 year old grandson, after remembering how much my own sons loved the Mr Men. He loved it. After reading it to him twice, he'd memorised the whole story almost word perfect. Now he can't wait to read the rest of the Mr Men books.
