Mr. Men series. Penguin, 2015. ISBN 9781409389057
(Age: 3-6) Recommended. Mr. Mo is the nicest gentleman in all of Dillydale; he's helpful and kind to all the townsfolk. He always speaks truthfully: 'No Mr. Tickle your fish was not that long!' He reminds Mr. Greedy that 'a gentleman puts more into life - than he takes out.' On the first of November, Mr. Mo visits the barber just to have his moustache trimmed. Unfortunately, he's so relaxed he falls asleep and his whiskers are all gone and his manners have disappeared as well.
His friends are surprised by the change in his behaviour. He slams Mr Nosey's nose in the baker's door, he spreads mud on Mr. Perfect's clean floors and is rude about Little Miss Splendid's hat. Luckily, as his moustache grow back, his manners also reappear.
Mr. Mo friends surprise him at the end of Movember when they become the Mo Bros!
Twenty percent of every Mr. Mo book sold helps support men's health issues around the world. This easy to read story has an important message and opens up conversations about healthy bodies and healthy minds, both male and female.
