Mr Dizzy Mr Dizzy always gets things confused until one day he happensupon a wishing well and his dearest wish comes true
Don't Underestimate2 April 2017 Poor Mr Dizzy, or should we say 'Mr Stupid', but then again this is a kid's book so we can't really encourage them to go around calling people stupid, though I suspect that Dizzy is probably a much, much nicer way of calling people stupid. Actually, I remember when the so called 'dumb people' were referred to as dizzy, though I didn't think about this until I started reading this book. Okay, I have read Mr Dizzy many times in the past, but it wasn't until my lates [...]
We got plenty of footage out of this library book. I was really interested in James' response to Mr. Dizzy's payback to the mean pig and elephant. The first time we read it James thought that Mr Dizzy was mean for tying the elephant's trunk in a knot. But today, after its umpteenth read-through (and without specific comment from me at any time about who was mean or about the morals of payback), James just laughed at the end and said "I dink dat's fuddy". (A quick summary of the book: Mr Dizzy is [...]
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.
It was really funny and he was really clever!
Mr Dizzy is not the brightest bulb. Unfortunately, some slightly more clever animals use Mr Dizzy's lack of intelligence as a way to make themselves feel superior. Mr Dizzy gets his revenge by by magically becoming clever himself and in turn bullying those who used to belittle him. This Mr Men book has some of the best illustrations thus far
“Mr Dizzy” - Overcomes ridicule by drinking from a magic well. Mr Dizzy realised he was now clever, and it wasn't an entirely unpleasant feeling.
I have now read this in French (why oh why won't GR let you add separate entries for books in different languages, or at least let you add a second review!?!? Grr!): still sad to see M. Nigaud crying (and the French version seems harsher and more profound, but then everything is more profound in French). At least the pig and the elephant got what they deserved.Review of English version:I never read this book when I was, well, in the target demographic for it, and I always assumed that Mr Dizzy w [...]
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 [...]
Hmmm, if I were a picky man, I'd wonder exactly how the title referred to the character. I was expecting some sort of vertigo related story!It's a useful tale to instil tolerance in children, showing that it's not that clever to belittle someone, or to feel superior over the less fortunate.A nice tale of redemption too, with a comic twist (quite literally!)revolving around the elephant. Or maybe it's just that I like putting on teh silly voices when reading these to my kids?
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.
Mr. Dizzy gets temporarily out of his dizziness and befuddles a pig and an elephant, both of whom had earlier made fun of his dizziness.If you analysed this too deeply it might be that the story were thought rather disturbing. Listen though people, THESE STORIES ARE FOR KIDS. Kids tend to be less judgemental than you might think.
Mr. Pig and Mr. Elephant see me rollin they hatin'. Tryin' to catch me with a stupid riddle, Tryin' to catch me with a stupid riddle, Tryin' to catch me with a stupid riddle, Tryin' to catch me with a stupid riddle, My music so loud, I'm dizzying. So I tied Mr. Elephant's trunk in a knot, that punk ass
Being clever doesn't mean you have to be mean like the elephant and pig, you have to understand that some are smart, some are little smart and some need more time to understand things, I like the way Mr. Dizzy pay them back their bad attitude, serves them right, Bravo Mr. Dizzy.
I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a kid.
My all time favourite Mr. Men book for some reason. Sean likes it too.
My favorite Mr Men book - he has such a happy smile
Mr dizzy lived in cleverland.One day,a pig told him a question.He went to the forest.He drank a wishing well.He became clever.
I did not like this book because I do not like being dizzy. I enjoyed this book because at the end Mr. Dizzy was not dizzy.
"The cleaver pig looked downright, if not downleft, miserable."
