A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

260. Mr. Happy by Roger Hargreaves

Mr. Happy by Roger Hargreaves
Mr. Men, #3

Rating: (5/5)

(Kindle) - (US) - (Canada) - (UK edition)

1971; 1997 Revised Edition, Price Stern Sloan/Penguin, 32 pgs

Age: 3+

"Mr. Happy meets Mr. Miserable and is determined to make him happy, too!"

Purchased a used copy a long time ago, probably from a thrift store.

Short and sweet.  Both the book and my review.  A children's classic, that can be enjoyed with just as much pleasure today as when it was written in 1971.  Adorable story about being happy that will keep the attention of all who read it.  I read the originals myself as a child in the early 70s and read them again to my children. The illustrations are the type that will have children trying to draw the men themselves and achieving good results.   I'm wondering though what the "revised edition" means.  The 1997 edition is still currently being published in North America.  I have a feeling it may just have had "British-isms" removed but will have to find an early edition to compare someday.
