He comes across Mr Small, who literally takes him for a ride, to the seaside. Whilst bemoaning his lot, Mr Tall is accosted by all manner of other "freaks" who are making the best of their circumstances. Realising that he should stop wallowing in self pity, Mr Tall heads off for home, leaving Mr Small stranded. A tou A double edged story: a tale of learning to be happy with yourself, yet with a twist of victimising someone who is different from you. A tough lesson for kids to learn, but one which they need to learn.
You must accept what life throws at you, and understand that people will leave you in the lurch. Aug 18, Alannah Clarke rated it really liked it Shelves: childhood-reads , recieved-as-gifts , reviewed. 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. Nov 27, Danielle Palmer rated it really liked it. Tall is having a pity party because his legs are SO long. Other characters come along to comfort him with examples of their own abnormalities, which does lift his spirits.
His extreme absent mindedness, though, could hinder him from excelling in such a position Sep 28, Siobhan rated it liked it.

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.

He gets upset a lot because of his height but in his story he learns his legs are nothing to be sad about they're useful especially for walking. Nov 22, Dan rated it it was amazing. A superb early introduction to the importance of self-acceptance.

Jun 30, Stinger rated it really liked it Shelves: kids. Witty and to the point, I strongly identified with the protagonist in this book.
Aug 30, Sean Harding rated it really liked it. I am reading them in random order and this was the first of them. I don't remember really which ones that I had read before but apart from the obvious similarities in tone and style and illustration this one was one I did not remember. Anyway a fun read and Mr Men books have always something to say. Apr 08, David Sarkies rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens. Actually, that's not all that surprising considering that they were some of my favourite books as a kid and I've probably read all of them more times than I can count.

I'm not sure if I have all of them or not though I do know that I don't have the Little Miss Books, though for all I know my sister might have a couple stashed away somewhere. Anyway, it's not that they have an encouraging story between their covers, but also that they are so short that I can read them and then write a review in some random place such as I'm doing now — that is writing a review while sitting on a train heading out to regional Victoria. Anyway, Mr Tall is about this guy who is, well, really, really, really tall.
In fact he is so tall that he can walk forty miles in something like four minutes is that actually possible? Mind you, it isn't that he is tall, it's just that he has really long legs which is probably why Usain Bolt runs so fast. I can actually empathise with the guy because my legs are also pretty long, which means that I regularly have to slow down to let my shorter legged friends keep up with me.
Well, Mr Tall really don't like being tall — he towers above everybody else which makes him stand out — a lot; he can't fit in his bed; and he can't go for a swim in the ocean because as soon as he gets to a point where it looks like it is deep enough, he is halfway there and is stating to go out the other side. So, when Mr Small goes for a swim he ends up sitting on the cliff they look like the white cliffs of Dover by the way , with his legs all the way down to the ground.
Mr Tall's probablem isn't so much his legs, but rather his perspective of the world. It is not because he is tall, but rather because he is different, which is what the book tries to teach us. Mr Tall wanders around all day, rather depressed, because he feels that he can't do things because his tall legs are a handicap.
However they are not so much a handicap as they are handicaps simply because he lets them be as such. When a parade of Mr Men walk past him, each of them having something that is much bigger than normal such as Mr Nosey's nose , he begins to realise that one is wasting his time bemoaning his misfortune, and learns to see the benefit. Sure, he may not be able to go for a swim, but her certainly can walk really really fast, which means that he can get home a lot quicker that many of us. Unfortunately, having been caught up in the delight of his revelation he sort of forgets something important.
Mar 31, Phil Syphe rated it it was amazing. 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. Dec 31, Joolissa rated it really liked it Shelves: zreads , zz-fix-edition , 2-paperback. Tall is distraught by his very long legs and all the trouble they cause him until he learns that he is wonderful just the way he is. Very cute little story. I want to get a copy for my very tall friend. I really need to own the whole set of Mr.
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.
Sep 30, Andy Hickman rated it liked it. Mr Small encourages him and they walk to the beach. This helps Mr Tall accept his specially long legs. Just a shame he forgets his closest friend, Mr Small, who has to walk home taking a whole year. Dec 27, Annabel rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , classics , contemporary. 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. Aug 20, Yomna rated it really liked it. Poor Mr Small :D.
