      Personally, I've always loved the Mr. Men books. I enjoyed reading this with my 5 year old sister.

      When a wizard's spell book is used by Mr Happy it leads to some unintended consequences.‎I thought this book had a sweet story, good illustrations and the moral underlying this tale was sensible.
