    1. Indy's first loan from the school library! He liked it, poor old Mr Clever was losing it a bit! He forgot his way home, even. He came across his friends along the way. I asked Indy who he thought one of them was (Mr Greedy) and he guessed Mr Purple. I love his way of thinking. Hopefully I can get him borrowing many more, maybe when I drop him off in the morning, before I head off to my own library. His lifelong learning journey has begun!

    2. You’re Never As Smart As You Think You Are19 March 2017 Well, this was a rather interesting little book. It starts off in a place called Cleverland where everybody is awfully clever, and it is about Mr Clever who happens to be really, really clever. In fact he is so clever that he loves to remind everybody of how clever he is. Mind you, the guy is pretty smart, and I suspect he happens to be an engineer because he has invented a multipurpose alarm clock, a toaster that toasts his bread, spread [...]

    3. Mr Clever is an egomaniac, who greets each person by stating “I’m the cleverest person in the world!” Now, right off the bat a statement like that would make most others dislike you. It seems a very clever person would be aware of that! So perhaps Mr Clever is smart but also socially inept. I think the best part of the book was learning how smart all the other residents in cleverland were! Worms who can drive! Flowers who learned to walk! Wow!!!! Much more impressive to me than Mr Clever h [...]

    4. Roger Hargreaves was an English writer and illustrator who specialised in children's books. He created the Mr Men series in 1971.I enjoyed this little book so much more than I really expected to. Being English means I know about the Mr Men and Little Miss series of books, but have never read them. This was my first and by Jingo it will not be my last. The humour is so wonderful I would honestly say that these are not at all only for children. The illustrations are simple yet elegant and they do [...]

    5. 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.

    6. The children talk about him to this day. Some say he exists, but no one can fully claim to have seen him. A clever man finally undone by his own smugness. He wanders the moors, mumbling to himself. A wraith.

    7. Mr. Clever, by Roger Hargreaves, is a picture book written in 1972.The book begins with Mr Clever vainly looking in the mirror saying how clever he was. Through the next several pages all of Mr. Clever's absurd inventions are introduced such as an alarm clock that can make tea, produce light, all while waking you up with a gentle "Good Morning." Mr. Clever decides to go for a walk, a very long walk. While on his journey he meets several characters that need his help, only to find out he can't he [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 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.

    10. A nice story with a good message, which my children seemed to absorb readily.Mr Clever wanders far from Cleverland, which demonstrates something I've found in life: highly intelligent people often have no common sense. Once outsid ehis comfort zone he finds that people are far more challenging than he expected and he isn't quite as smart as he first thought.Good for children to learn that book smarts aren't the only guage of someone!

    11. Mr. Clever is like Mr. Potatohead except for if Mr. Potatohead were an orange instead of a potato. He fancies himself one clever motherfucker. He has a friend that is like a lemon. But things aren't all that citrusey, because another dude looks like a blueberry. I think it's a dude, but I didn't see a cock or anything. Even though they're all totally naked. Like me while writing this review.

    12. I loved these books as a kid, I think because they're so colourful and silly. Though there is a message hidden in each - in this case, Mr. Clever thinks he's very clever, only to find out that he doesn't, in fact know everything - they are also enjoyable and funny.

    13. Mr. Clever was a book from my childhood. I ended up with it back in my hands and read it to my daughter and she enjoyed it as much as I did so many years ago. The illustrations are simplistic and the story is rather simple as well but it is still a good book and I would recommend it.

    14. So proud of him self just because he's clever? What a petty and what a surprise for him, he didn't imagine that there are lots of things he doesn't know.

    15. My son's teacher apparently picked up a whole new set of the Mr and Miss books over the summer and my son is determined to read all of them, so here we go

    16. I enjoyed this book because Mr. Clever was very clever. I also enjoyed this book because I like doing clever things.

    17. Mr. Clever not as smart as he likes to think. Some of the other Mr. Men ensure that he doesn't get too big-headed over his cleverness.
