Mr BumgayMr. Men has always been a British classic that we loved as children and will probably read to our children and our children’s children.

The one thing I can’t help thinking is that it has never received the literary recognition that it deserved. That is until now.

Hamilton Richardson has produced a set of detailed and truly inspired reviews of the Mr. Men series that cover everything from social issues of unemployment in the 70s and 80s in Mr. Small, blissful and Mr. Messy’s unselfconscious disregard for the Social Order and this Nietzschean parable of the Superman of Mr. Strong.

The books are in themselves a sublime oeuvre and well worth a read; Hamilton’s reviews are the icing on the cake!
