Does anyone else remember the Little Miss and Mr. Men series? Why it was always Little Miss and why never Little Mr. I'll never know but I have fond memories of making the Incredibly-Patient-Mother read Little Miss Clean to me over and over and over and over again. She ran outside, wiped up the puddle, ran inside, washed the rag, dried it, ironed it (a washcloth...), and put it away. It was quite extreme but I'm here to tell you--I don't iron my washcloths. So apparently it didn't warp me too much.
But those books--are back. They were in my fall Penguin Group Catalog under the Price Stern Sloan section.
