5.0 out of 5 starsAbout a misfit who finds his way outAug. 14 2006
By W. Hobbs - Published on Amazon.com
I have read this as well as the other Mr. Men books. Mr. Quiet lives in Loudland, where everybody and everything is noisy. This place would be suitable for Mr. Noisy, but not for Mr. Quiet. Mr. Quiet cannot do errands because the townspeople are too loud for him. But one day Mr. Quiet gets a letter from Mr. Happy to stay in Happyland where it is quieter. Mr. Quiet gets a job in a library(because everybody must be quiet in a library) and is so happy he laughs out loud. In terms of other Mr. Men being featured in the later books, this is one that mentions one(Mr. Noisy) but he is not seen. Hey, maybe Mr. Noisy moved into Mr. Quiet's old house in Loudland!

Poor Mr Quiet lives in Loudland. He goes shopping to get some food but none of the shopkeepers hear him so he goes away very sad & without food. One day he gets an invitation from Mr Happy to go for a visit. He eats his first decent meal in weeks & tells Mr happy all about his troubles. Mr Happy invites him to stay on with him & offers to get him a job. Mr Quiet says he is no good at a job as he is so quiet but Mr Happy gets him the perfect job at the local library & Mr Quiet is thrilled.
Our kids love ALL these books.

By Patricia K. Goodrich - Published on Amazon.com
My children and I loved the Mr. and Little Miss books while they were growing up. They are all over 25 now and they still remember these books and have gotten them to share with their children ! Mr. Quiet was without question our very favorite throughout the years. It's a fun story and has memorable characters ! Highly recommended !
