    One thought on “Mr. Skinny”

    1. I am not sure about this one. The illustrations are cute, but all the people in Fatland (including Mr. Skinny) seem to suffer from eating disorder.

    2. We had all these when I was a kid. I used to love them I especially remember Mr. Bump, Mr. Messy, and Mr. Rush. Eleanor just got Mr. Skinny from her Aunt Mary. I had forgotten how completely awesome they really are.And how completely awesome are they?Completely.

    3. I'm having a hard time not finding this book disturbing. It's still got the fun drawings, and the Fatland Elephant has to be the cutest thing ever, but everyone in this book seems to have an eating disorder this one is obviously not for me.

    4. What did I think of the book? I think Mr Skinny is living in the absolutely wrong place, as he lives in Fatland. Also, I think Mr Skinny is anorexic, as he severely limits his food intake. I was quite proud of Mr Skinny for reaching out for help, however quite shocked at the unorthodox treatment his Dr prescribed. At the end of the book Mr Skinny has what appears to be a beer belly. When choosing the lesser of two evils, I’m not sure which is worse - alcoholism or anorexia

    5. A lovely tale of feeling alone and living outside the norm. Questionable in terms of the content in this new healthy living age - my kids were concerned as to the doctor's behaviour!The illustrations are wonderful, engaging my children rapidly and underlining the scale of Fatland.The story invites children to be creative in thinking of other things that might exist in Fatland, and what other ways Mr Skinny could solve his problems.

    6. 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.

    7. Despairing of being the only skinny individual in Fatland Mr Skinny is sent on the orders of his gluttonous doctor to a kind of reverse-detox holiday chez Mr Greedy. A good laugh, and especially fine with a white wine sauce.

    8. You're Different, Be Yourself31 January 2016 Well, here I was, about to sit down and read my second Mr Men book in donkey's years and what did I discover? That I actually cannot remember anything about them. So imagine my shock when I opened to the first page to discovered that it was about this really, really skinny person who lives in a place called Fatland. Well, I didn't think it was supposed to be politically correct to make fun of fat people (though as my Mum would always say people can go [...]

    9. 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 [...]

    10. I first read this book to my little one in French and was sure the author was French as well. He wasn't though. He was English. He wrote and illustrated a series of children's books that in French is known as 'collection monsieur madame ', translated in many languages. I could not find any edition in Portuguese yet. Is there any? This collection is fantastic in my point of view. My one-year-old daughter loves it. She first was caught by the illustrations, which she loves, and now she seems to st [...]

    11. 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.

    12. I love that this book highlights that being too skinny is as much of a problem as obesity. It was ahead of its time! Although I fear there may be some 'celebrities' following Mr Skinny's diet as a quick glance at the E! Channel shows plenty of people who look like they eat a cornflake and a baked bean a day Anyway, I loved this book and it has perhaps the best Mr Men cameo ever :-)

    13. I did not like this book because I do not like being skinny. I also did not like this book because Mr. Skinny was very skinny.
