Review: Mr. Happy and the Office Party - Roger Hargreaves

The Mr. Men have been tickling children for generations with their funny and charming antics. The Mr Men for Grown-Ups series now gives adults the chance to laugh along as the Mr Men and Little Miss try to cope with the very grown-up world around them. Featuring Roger Hargreaves classic artwork alongside hilariously funny new text.

Mr Happy is usually a very happy fellow. But the morning after the office party, he doesn't feel so happy. In fact, he loses his smile. It couldn’t be that bad, could it?

The perfect book for anyone who has ever been to a work party and lived to tell the tale.

Also available in The Mr Men for Grown-Ups series:
Little Miss Shy Goes Online Dating, Mr Greedy Eats Clean to Get Lean and Little Miss Busy Surviving Motherhood.

Review:
If you were a fan of the Mr. Men and Little Miss books as a child then you're sure to love the nostalgic feeling these revamped adult versions will give you. The books are in the same format we know and love and they have used a selection of Roger Hargreaves' original illustrations that fit the new storylines pretty perfectly.

This book starts with a very hungover Mr. Happy and then goes back in time to show the events of the office Christmas party that made him feel ill in the first place. I have to admit that this was my least favourite of the four grown up books released so far but it was still amusing and there were a lot of nods to little things that workers are sure to recognise from their own office parties. These books are perfect little stocking fillers or secret Santa gifts and I hope we'll see more books published in the range.
