Comments Mr. Bump

  • David Sarkies

    Finding One's Calling1 July 2017 It has been a little while since I have read a Mr Men book so I decided that it would be time to rectify that situation. Well, since they are such short books getting time to read them isn’t a problem, it more has to do with getting time to write a review on them afterwards. Also, I’m not too keen on flooding people’s feed with reviews of Mr Men books (though it isn’t as if there is an unlimited number of them), so I’ve decided to try and space them ou [...]

    So simple, so much fun, such lovely illustrations - timeless.

  • Amy....

    this book is about mr bump and he bumps into eveyrthings a good book cause it relates to alot of people.

  • Jules

    My 6 year old niece says Mr. Bump hurts himself every day and it makes her feel sad. He's very kind though, as he was cheering Little Miss Hug up on the TV today.

  • Shirley Revill

    Loved the Mr men series by Roger Hargreaves. Was always a pleasure to read these books with my children.

  • Liz

    The best of the Mr Men series in my opinion. Mr Bump was a huge hit with me, I was a clumsy kid and I felt his pain! My kids both loved this book too. Full of belly laughs - great fun!

  • James

    This was a re-read.

  • Lance

    "If there was something for Mr. Bump to bump into, he's bump into it all right."Dyspraxic hero, Mr. Bump, can't help getting himself into accidents. I can't believe this charming children's book is not almost 40 years old, I really enjoyed the original illustrations where the author's pen marks are visible in his lovingly shaped creations. I enjoyed the author's whimsical style. The world is brilliant, so rounded, cushioned, and absurd. For instance. "One day when he was quietly walking along th [...]

  • Baby Adam

    Mr. Bump is lots of fun, and gets stumblied all of the time, just like a big silly goslie I know. ;)It was lots of fun reading through Mr. Bump with Lance! <3

  • Godzilla

    Another twisted Mr Men tale, innocent on the surface, but with a menacing subtext.I think we all know someone like Mr Bump - an accident prone disaster waiting to happen. Sometimes their misfortunes can be amusing, as Mr Bump's ladder incident proves: my kids thought it was hilarious.However the exploitation of minorities is not to be lauded or laughed at. Mr bump is hounded from job to job due to simple mistakes in most cases. A reasonable boss would cut him some slack and provide further on th [...]

    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.

  • Wayne Farmer

    My favourite Mr. Man when i was a child - i even had a soft toy with removable bandages that i loved!

  • Hilary

    I'm finding some of the punctuation a little annoying, but the stories are a lovely combination of wacky and encouraging.

  • Rob Towner

    Yes, I read all of these as a kid. I'll be here all day folks

  • Lianna

    oh mr. bump what trouble will you get into next

  • Tara Calaby

    My copy of this was coverless, due to an unfortunate incident while being potty trained. I rather liked it despite that.

  • Joey Woolfardis

    The difference in how good these books are is kind of insane. This one was just, hmm, alright.

  • Curtis Senior

    MR Bump always bumps into everything.

  • Ian McHugh

    Florence and I loved reading this so much that we had to read it three times. "Again. Again." Mr Bump is proper clumsy but he finds a job in the end, a job that allows him to be himself, and he's happy. A lovely story, funny, and a brilliant twist that allows Flo to see apples in a different light - and provides further encouragement, added to that of Mummy & Daddy, to eat them all up!

  • Sean

    I do love these stories. They are simple, straightforward and have a lovely moral. This is no exception, and tells how Mr Bump takes a negative liability and turns into a positive quality.

  • Danielle Palmer

    Why are we never clued in as to how Mr. Bump received his large and apparently persistent abdominal wound?!

  • Jordan Rawlins

    So I recently went to an art show at the Iam8bit gallery in LA, the whole show was dedicated to the Mr. Men, Little Miss, collection. The art was great, but even better, they had the whole collection of these books for sale. While scanning over these books that I hadn't read in a decade, I immediately was drawn to "Mr. Bump". I knew it was my childhood favorite, but wasn't sure why. So I bought it and re-read it. What an amazing book. SImple. Short, but for some reason, super appealing. I love t [...]

  • Phil Syphe

    Think I’m right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of “Mr Snow”. 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.Reckon the last time I would’ve read these was 1983, though may have returned to them as late as 1985. Although I’ve forgotten almost everything about this [...]

  • Kathleen Dixon

    The Mr Men and Little Miss series have been around for a long time, but I never came across them when my children were young. Since that I've seen them here and there, but never read any. Today James borrowed Mr Bump from the library and we loved it. James was particularly delighted with the way Mr Bump eventually found gainful employmentAs a first-time reader of any Mr Men books, I was initially surprised at the large amount of text (for the size of the book, that is) on a page, accompanied by [...]

  • Alannah Clarke

    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.

  • C.B. Wentworth

    I read the Mr. men and LIttle Miss books when I was a kid, but a recent trip to London rekindled my love of this classic series. Being an absolute klutz myself , I can relate to Mr. Bump in a number of ways. His adventures in bumping into things and accidentally breaking things gives me yet another way to have a sense of humor about my own clumsiness.

  • Annabel

    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.

  • Ben

    this was written before forest gump, and the fact that the names rhyme is certainly no coincidence. unlike with gump, the success he finds through his inability is much more true to life. and yet we call mr. bump a kid's book.

  • Matt

    This was a pretty funny book, until the end. Then, it was just OK.For instance, this book gives a bunch of funny examples of Mr. Bump hurting himself (because he's clumsy), then the moral of the story has to do with eating fruit.

  • Alex

    I enjoyed this book because it was funny. I also enjoyed this book because the funny part was he bumped a lot. I also enjoyed this book because I really liked that he bumped into the apple trees and got apples that way.
