Mr. Bounce: 01/05/07
Ian's parents have a large collection of Mr. Men books and when we visit, Sean likes to read them. Over the recent holiday I read three ones I've haven't read before: Mr. Bounce, Mr. Noisy, and Mr. Small.
Mr. Bounce as the cover art suggests is the size and color of a tennis ball. He also bounces like a tennis ball. In fact, he bounces so much that it's interfering with his quality of life. What does a little yellow man who is too bouncy do? He goes to his doctor of course.
Sean likes this particular Mr. Men story because Mr. Bounce is a ball and later he's a ball with big heavy shoes. Sean knows of another ball with shoes, namely, Kirby. When playing Melee and Air Ride, yellow is one of the options for Kirby. So it makes perfect sense to Sean that Mr. Bounce is actually a yellow Kirby.
