    • My nephew loves this series and I Had to read this to him. Each one is so interesting and it's own connected to the whole Mr. Men.I'm not exactly quiet, but I too would hate to live in the land of LOUD. It would be miserable. I'm glad Mr. Quiet found the library. It is one of the most wonderful things humanity does for itself. Yeah Mr. Quiet!I want to read more of these. They are fun and interesting.

    • A Place for Everyone22 August 2016 - Lille One of the annoying things about travelling is that I end up not having enough time to sit down and write a book review, or if I do it is some time after I've either finished the book, or I have left the place where I wanted to write the review. I am currently in Arras France, and I only realised this afternoon that I wanted to write a review in Lille, not that there is all that much in Lille, just a park, a zoo, The Mother of all Citadels (actually it [...]

    • Poor Mr Quiet, although he lives in a beautiful country home in the middle of the woods, he is malnourished because his requests to purchase food go unnoticed and unheard in loud land. Give this man a burger!!! And, I think this poor fellow needs a bullhorn. Instead he uproots his life, abandons his home, and moves away. Trading his lovely home for quieter neighbors and a new job perfectly suited to him seems to be the wisest choice in the end. Truly proving that possessions can’t buy happines [...]

    • A tale of the underdog, oppression of a minority and ultimately a redemption tale.Mr Quiet is trapped in Loudland, not living, merely existing. He's outside society's norms: too quiet, unassuming and unable to stand up for himself. His voice is literally unheard, ignored by everyone and facing a society unwilling to adapt to his needs.He's rescued by the good samaritan Mr Happy and finds solace and satisfaction in Happyland. Intolerance is the victor again.

    • This is definitely one of my top favorite Mr. Men books and I just adore the ending. Hurrah (view spoiler)[Librarians! (hide spoiler)]. As a bookish and often very quiet person who doesn't enjoy lots of chaotic loud noise this one really appealed to me. I really need to own the whole set of Mr. Men! They make me so very happy. I loved them as a kid, though I think I only ever read a few of them. The whole series is like a warm cup of children's tea on a snow day.

    • Ah, Mr Men and Little Miss, how wonderful you are!These books made up so much of my childhood. No matter what I would go ahead and pick one up. I worked my way through them all a couple of times. Each one has a wonderful story for the child to engage with, each character being fun to read. Everyone has a bias for their favourite character, yet every book is delightful.

    • I wuld hope the Mr. Men books need little introduction. They are universally excellent and highly recommended for young readers from 3 - 10.No particularly insightful reviews on the other Mr. Men books will be forthcoming. This one isn't really too insightful, is it?

    • Think I’m right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of “Mr Snow”. Looking at all the covers apart from the latter jogged my memory.Sadly I remember little about the stories now, despite reading them numerous times during my boyhood, plus watching the Mr Men cartoons more than once.Reckon the last time I would’ve read these was 1983, though may have returned to them as late as 1985. Although I’ve forgotten almost everything about this [...]

    • I absolutely loved these Mr Men and Little Miss books. I remember getting them from my granny every week. There was so much from these simple characters, I remember filling my little bookshelf with all these books making sure I had got them all in right order. I wish I still had these books but somehow most of them got lost with many house moves or my mum gave the rest away. If I ever have kids, I will make sure they get the chance to experience these wonderful, colourful books.*I was always qui [...]

    • A quiet / unobtrusive Mr Man has problems as he lives in Loud Land.I thought this was a sweet little story with good illustrations and as someone who isn’t loud or pushy it made me smile. This is a good book for young children.

    • I love the Mr. and Miss books! I remember reading them as a child and I love that I now get to share my love of these books with my students. I especially love Mr. Quiet because he's just so darn cute! It's also a great book to read in class when you'r trying to get your students to QUIET DOWN! ;)

    • he's so cute. i mean look at him! and when he goes hungry it hurts your soul. and the conclusion makes you believe in god.

    • Excellent book, although it raises a lot if questions. Helped a great discussion about the use of quiet voices and loud voices!

    • Nice story indeed and how clever Mr. Happy is when he though of a great a wonderful job that suites Mr. Quiet perfectly ^_^
