    2. Little Miss Wise is as wise as an owl ,,, possibly two owls.She brushed her teeth every day, she made her bed every day, she tidied her house every day, and did lots of other wise and sensible things.She used to go for a walk every day and on one of her walks she met Miss Naughty who wanted her to jump in some puddles with her, but, being wise, she didn t want to get her feet wet so she declined.Then she met Miss Greedy who wanted her to eat some cake filled with cream and smothered in pink icin [...]

    3. 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.

    12. To me Little Miss Wise isn t very wise at all At first it was a case of not living, which she was wise enough to figure out, but then to do the opposite and say yes to everything isn t wise at all And she learns her lesson ten fold Perhaps she is wise but then she definitely isn t sensible about it Perhaps we need a bit of both Hopefully by the end of it she has learned that lesson, for though it seems like she may have, we have no indication of that.
