Mr. Small: 01/07/07
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.
My favorite of the three Mr. Men books that I read on new year's day is Mr. Small because it brings together world of the Mr. Men and the human world. Mr. Small is probably the smallest of the Mr. Men and his size provides a unique series of challenges. Ultimately though Mr. Small's biggest problem is boredom. He wants something to do in his life and he decides the best way to do that is by getting a job.
It is through the job search the the two worlds collide. Mr. Small goes to work for a variety of human employers. Over and over again Mr. Small finds himself too small to perform physical labor. At last though the perfect job lands in his lap. What is it? Ask Roger.
