This is another in the Mr Men and Little Miss books which takes a familiar fairy tale and adds that special twist, featuring characters which will be familiar to all lovers of the Roger Hargreaves books. This story features Little Miss Trouble – who, of course, is always causing trouble! She is in Seatown, when she decides to go fishing with Mr Muddle and Little Miss Bossy. However, when she does have a tug on her line, she finds herself pulled down into the sea by a mermaid. The Mermaid Queen is very cross about all the trouble that Little Miss Trouble has been causing and wants to teach her a lesson…. Great fun, lovely illustrations and familiar characters, make this story great fun for all young children.

How would you like to be able to say "Toast" to the toaster, "Spread" to the knife, "Open" to the door and everything do exactly as you say? Of course, Little Miss Magic is make believe but a child's imagination is a wonderful place and it will grow and develop as they read this book. Children are also smart in that they realise that it is just that, make believe.

As this story progresses, Mr. Happy comes to see Miss Magic about a problem with Mr. Tickle. Mr. Tickle is being very inconsiderate and generally making a nuisance of himself. Instead of using his gift of long arms to make people smile with the occasional tickle, he has been WAY overdoing it until the Mr. Men and Little Miss characters plead him to stop. It is time for him to learn a lesson - think Time Out! Little Miss Magic causes his arms to shorten for a day and tells him to come back to see her the following morning.

When asked the next morning if he would like his long arms to grow back, Mr. Tickle of course says "Yes!" However, Little Miss Magic wisely puts a condition with his long arms returning: Mr. Tickle is only allowed ONE tickle per day!

Hmm.... One tickle a day. As Mr. Tickle heads out, a smile grows on his face. Who is he going to tickle that day?!

A delightful story that will show children the need to be moderate in all that they do. No matter how great their talent there needs to be balance and other people need to have a say as well as them.

My daughter and I find these books delightful.
The drawings are lovely and the stories very creative, engaging and beautiful!
We are in the process of collecting all of the Mr Men and Little Miss Magic.
Highly recommended.

Mr Bump is still searching for a perfect job - and a suit of armour would seem to be the perfect protection for the accident-prone Mr Man.

This is written by Roger Hargreave's son, and the style and illustrations are very reminiscent of the originals.

My son loved this adventure - with knights, dragons - and a funny ending that made us both laugh.

We have started reading these later books in the series and enjoy seeing our old favourites in new adventures. They are suitable for fans of ages 2-3 and above.

My son adores Mr Man and Little Miss books. The anniversary books are a very welcome addition to the collection. Written and illustrated by the author's son, they preserve the spirit, wit and even language of the older books, but with some funny twists and new storylines that keep the kids wondering. The "magic series" of stories involving dragons, knights, princesses, witches, mermaids and other magical creatures is a MUST for all fans.

This has been a great story along with the other Mr Men books for our daughter. Sparkliness is good too!

my reluctant reader (6 yrs) is sufficiently tempted by the story to keep trying. The stories in these new books are better thought out & more satisfying than the originals.

Bought this book instead of party bags as I'm fed up with plastic rubbish my kids bring from other birthday parties. Had good feedback on this book so it was read a lot by the party guests at home.
