Growing up, I always looked forward to the Scholastic book order forms, and I would beg my mom to order more Mr. Men/Little Miss books. I loved those short little stories and simple illustrations, and the morals and manners they slyly taught were beneficial. They have been around for more than four decades, and have taught countless kids the proper way to act.
Now, there is a series for adults who did not experience the originals. The parody series, Little Miss and Mr. Me Me Me, features annoying adults that don’t have it all together, though they think they do. The first four books in the series and Mr. Selfie, Little Miss Basic, Mr. Humblebrag, and Little Miss Overshare. Four more books are scheduled for publication in March, 2016. I guarantee you know some of these people. Hopefully you, yourself, are not found in these pages.
These are books for a grown-up audience. There is no foul language, but some of the topics are risque and not appropriate for younger readers. After reading them, you may want to share with your ridiculous friends who emulate these very attributes, hoping they get the hint. But they probably won’t.
