Poor Jack Robinson is in bed with the spots! He's rather bored until a blue blur shoots through the window! Mr. Cool! With a snap of his fingers, Jack is transported to the cockpit of a plane, to a soccer game in which he participates, to the tallest tree in the world and up to Mt Everest! What is the last thing Mr. Cool does for Jack? You'll have to read to find out!
If you don't like the word "cool" then stay away from this book as you will read it a lot throughout the story! Otherwise enjoy the adventure!
My son had all the original Mr Men books and now my Grandson just adores them. I was amazed to find out that there were a few new ones added to the main set and just had to get them. I love reading these colourful fun filled books to my Grandson, we read 2 or 3 at bedtime when he stays with me. He was recently extremely ill in hospital and these fab books managed to cheer him at a very painful and difficult time.
Me and my 3 year old boy love this one. It's been read over and over since getting a few weeks ago. Especially worked well when my child had chicken pox and had the same spots as the antagonist! Also, I swap the name of the football team in the story to West Ham United in order to brain wash my child. Happy reading!
I bought this as a gift when we went to visit friends in Germany. The little boy is learning English and the books are a great help as his mum reads them along with him and helps him in German if he gets stuck. A wonderfully simple book. Would recommend any of the series!
This is a gripping and electrifying new novel, full of suspense, secret, and of course ultimate coolness from the incomparable Roger Hargreves. Iv'e yet to meet an adult who hasn't been entranced by it's witty complex plot and the character of the eponymous Mr Cool. Such a marriage of good writing, inventiveness and sheer sex appeal has not been seen since roald Dahl, perhaps even since Tolkien, Lewis and Randsome. Roger Hargreves has opened a whole generation to reading. There are so many surprising twists that you will not be able to put the book down, even if you wanted to!...utterly sensational!
