My son’s kindergarten class is nuts for the Mr. Men and Little Miss series of books. By now, they’ve read all of them so, when my wife volunteered to go to school and read to the kids, I decided to create a new one.
The story is typical of the series but with more jokes aimed at the parents. The protagonist is Mr. Read who likes to read, of course. Also in the story are Little Miss Evil, and Mr. Hip and Mr. Party. Little Miss Punctual was in a early draft but was edited out.
Most important, it demonstrated to me how quickly I can make a book like this. It felt like every time I start a book project, it would take a year to get it 3/4 done and even then it wouldn’t look as good as I thought it would. This book took about a day, all totaled, and it looks good.
