    One thought on “Mr. Uppity”

    1. Hargreave's Snob24 February 2018 - Geelong I suspect that there are probably a group of people out there who would read this book and then cry out that Roger Hargreaves is a dirty socialist. The reason I say that is because he, on the surface, seems to be having a go at the rich. Having just read Mr Mean, and now Mr Uppity, he certainly seems to be having a dig at people who have money – or is he? Personally I don't think so and the reason I say this is because at the end of the book both of o [...]

    2. Class War mixed up with the goblins, this book has it all.Mr Uppity is just asking for a fall: a monocle and top hat? Who does he think he is? Chris Eubank?Having taken some mindbending drug (the book doesn't mention that, but it's obvious to the reader) Mr Uppity sees a goblin in his garden.Cue a very Alice in Wonderland moment and he's whisked off to see the Goblin King, who warns him about his future conduct.Coming down from his trip, slowly he learns his lesson, and changes his errant ways.A [...]

    3. 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.

    4. The Mr. Men books are an English book my mom had when she was younger. She let me read them and each as a different story. This one is about Mr. Uppity. He is super stuck up. He thinks he is right and no one can change his mind. In his mind he is “God”.

    5. These Mr. Men books are so weird. My son loves them and it looks like we will be reading a lot of them this school year as his teacher seems to have the whole series!

    6. I did not like this book because Mr. Uppity was rude. I also did not like this book because I do not like being rude.

    7. The golden rules of please and thank you. This is why I adore the Mr. Men books. They're not only fun but also educative. With great and simple illustrations it's fun to read at any age.Here we have Mr.Uppity, a Scrooge-like character who learns his lesson about being rude. With great (and cute) little goblins to teach him the error of his ways.

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 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.

    10. The 'Mr Men' and 'Little Miss' books are so simple yet so effective. I love the way that all the characters are linked and how characters pop up in other stories!The books are great for encouraging young children to read because they are interesting, have a variety of simple language and are short enough that young children don't get bored! Children love collecting all the characters too.

    11. I actually had no problem with Mr Uppity's uppitiness. Replying, "No" if someone asks if you have the time seems perfectly reasonable to me. And his house looks awesome :-)Updated:I have now read the French version As usual, much more profound. I am disappointed that he saw the error of his ways, but it was nice to see a smile on his face.

    12. “Mr Uppity” - Rude and miserable, Mr Uppity is rich but friendless. His encounter with a goblin makes him shrink and takes him down the stairs of a tree (similar to Mr Happy's journey). He eventually learns to say “please” and “thank you”.

    13. Probably my least favourite of the Mr Men series. I really wonder if children need to be taught such a lesson at such a young age.Of course, many of the other books have morals - yet this seems a bit too much.
