THE CAPTAIN'S TURN FIRST.

The captain of a merchant ship, on being appointed to a new vessel, heard that his crew had a very bad name for the use of oaths. He determined to put an end to bad language on his ship, and, knowing how hard it would be to do so by the mere exercise of authority, thought of a novel plan which was entirely successful. He summoned the men and addressed them thus:

'I want to ask you all a favour, and I know that British sailors will hardly refuse a favour to their new captain. It is my duty to take the lead in everything, and especially in one thing. Now, will you grant me my favour?'

'Aye, aye, sir,' said the men, not knowing what he would ask.

'It is this, then. I want to take the lead in . . . Read More

I like this book a lot because its very relatable to children everyone has that little chatterbox in their class and I feel this is a good to book to teach them how to calm it down. She met people just like her who liked to talk as much as she does but the main plot was about her trying to get a...more

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 s...more

"Have you ever heard about somebody being able to talk the hind leg off a donkey?". Hysterical. A little reminiscent of the SNL H. Ross Perot parody. I enjoyed these more than my son, Salo, 15 months. I will probably not revisit the Little Miss and Mr. series with my son. Some parts of the storie...more

Can Little Miss Chatterbox find a job that allows her to chatter on and on and on and on and on and on and on...?

Not one of my favorites. Maybe because my dad could be called Mr. Chatterbox and I know what it's like to wait while someone talks on and on and on and on and on and on....more

Children and adults alike love the children's books written by Roger Hargreaves.
They are not expensive and I had lots of fun with my children building a library of these wonderful stories. Recommended.

I have read this book many times to children and they really enjoy it. This book is great for younger children and offers a lot of opportunities for questions and predictions throughout it.

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.

My family bought me a Little Miss Chatterbox doll as a joke a few years ago and it came with this book. I found it the other day so I thought, "Why not read it?"
So, I did and after I was done I found that I actually quite liked it! It was quick, funny and cute and I'm sure any little kid would en...more

I grew up loving these little bitty books. i how i love this book

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 shor...more
