Format: Paperback
Most of the Mr.Men/Little Miss books are very amusing. Some are even good examples of modeling and explaining personality traits for young children; and, it is not unusual for some characters to find their limits or learn how balance their traits to adapt better in their fanciful, little story-world.
Little Miss Stubborn, on the other hand, is so far the worst I've read. Not only is the story lacking the hallmark droll of the series; but, a little TOO true-to-her-character, Little Miss Stubborn never changes! Offering perfect examples of how to be stubborn, the story just meanders to no conclusion. Even worse, there were no "consequences" for Little Miss Stubborn compelling enough to point out to children how unpleasant this behavior can be. This is an unusual book in the series compared to others such as Mr. Tickle (who learned the limits of his tickling antics) and Little Miss Wise (who learned how to be a little more adventurous).
If you have a stubborn child whom you hoped reading this to might shed some insight for them, don't bother. Lessons aside, it isn't even entertaining. Pointless.

HASH(0x9fa6f1a4) out of 5 stars Don't skip over this one so fast.... Sept. 5 2004
By HWB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I saw the one negative review on this book and I had to put my two cents in. My mom gave this book to me because I am a mom of two "Little Miss Stubborns" myself. I thought it was very amusing as the other Mr. Men and Little Miss books are, which I love because my kindergarten teacher used to read them to us when I was a little girl. I give it four stars because I agree it could have a better ending, and Little Miss Stubborn is not polite to Mr. Strong and something should be said about that. But I disagree with the idea that it is a terrible book with no morals. A lot of bad things happen to Little Miss Stubborn along the way just because she is so stubborn. She gets on the wrong bus because she won't listen to Mr. Nosey who is telling her she is going the wrong way to Mr. Strong's house. Then when the bus takes her to Coldland instead, she gets rolled down the hill in a snowball avalanche, and she catches a cold. All the while, she has a very stubborn attitude saying things like, "I don't catch colds!" It is a cute book, and if you know somebody who is very stubborn, it will really hit home.

As far as the morals in the story, while I admit it could have a better ending that sums up why it is not a good thing to be so stubborn, it is up to parents and teachers to talk about the book and point out Little Miss Stubborn's mistakes. Just like with any other book, if you have more to say when the book is done, talk about it afterwards. Like I said before, a lot of bad things happen to Little Miss Stubborn, and kids can see that her stubborn attitude gets her into a lot of trouble. Just don't dismiss the book because it doesn't spell out the moral at the end. I think it's a fun and amusing book, and my oldest daughter who is almost 4 wants me to read it over and over. If you have a stubborn person in your life and you are considering buying this book, read the book and make your own decision, but don't make up your mind based on the few reviews you see here.

HASH(0x9fa6f1f8) out of 5 stars Could use some help June 19 2006
By Sarah A. Cates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book after reading the reviews on it. I have to agree with the review of it not being finished. The book leaves you hanging. It really needs an ending to it. I think it is okay, but I still have to do a lot more explaining with this book than I do "Little Miss Bossy." My daughter, who is very smart gets Little Miss Bossy, but asks a lot more questions on Little Miss Stubborn. Good book, but be prepared to end it yourself.

HASH(0x9fa6f9f0) out of 5 stars This is why I don't think this is a bad book... June 21 2016
By pl7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We love Little Miss and Mr. Men books. We've been collecting them for my daughter, who is now 5, and she has enjoyed me reading them to her since she was a toddler.

This past January I was excited to get Little Miss Stubborn and a couple others for her birthday. We have a long line of "Miss Stubborns" in the family and it did not skip my daughter!

Honestly, I was a bit hesitant when I started to purchase this after seeing the few negative reviews but considering what I said above about our collecting and love of this series and the fact that it was only a few dollars I felt like it wouldn't be a problem for me if it didn't end up being very good.

Well, we ended up loving it.

I will explain in a moment why but will say first that I think it just boils down to whether you want to risk a few dollars to decide for yourself, though. Like many others things, books can be a matter of preference and what one person takes from it another won't.

I do agree that the ending is different from some of the others...I think some of the books in the series have more of a closed ending and some, like this one, are more of an open ending. It leaves it open for you interpret (yes, even kids books do this) and to discuss possible outcomes and better explain why she should have/shouldn't have done those things.

I personally think it still has a moral to the story...maybe it does require a bit more explanation than some of the others but we're usually talking about the book we're reading along the way and afterward so it's not much different. Even if we have read it many times before, sometimes the moral will apply differently at different times and ages.

For example(bear with me lol), with Little Miss Stubborn....my daughter recently has discovered her love of cart wheels and constantly does them...she will do them so much that she makes her self dizzy and it ends up upsetting her stomach..so the other day as soon as she finishes lunch she is right back to the cartwheels and I told her she should probably wait until her food settled more before she did them...she kept doing them but I didn't stop her because I knew what was coming...she ended up on the couch with a bad stomach ache...that night we read this book and had her think about each time someone tried to warn Little Miss Stubborn and she didn't listen, what the outcome was and how you can learn from that...the book might not be as direct as some of the others and will require more explanation but you can at least take from it that it's not fun to learn the hard way...and that you might not like to hear someone tell you not to do something but sometimes they know more about what's best for you..and if you decide not to listen, things can end up pretty rough!😩

I also just love books that my daughter loves to read...when I read them to her I try to be as silly as possible to keep it interesting. She even likes to just look through the book on her own and is now even practicing her reading with it...it's not even an early reader book but she likes it that much so that's a plus!

Everyone is different though...every kid is different and has different interests so sometimes you have to try it out to decide...this is one reason I love these books, they're usually under $4 which makes it much easier to take a risk with a new book!
HASH(0x9fa6f99c) out of 5 stars Stubborn to the end! July 5 2015
By Richard and Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unlike the majority of the Little Miss and Mr. Men books, the character in this one, Little Miss Stubborn is NOT cured of her stubbornness! Does she suffer the consequences of her actions though? Most times, yes! When she does not listen to Mr. Nosey when he tells her that the bus she is waiting to catch does not go to Mr. Strong's house but Little Miss Stubborn takes it anyway, she ends up in Coldland. There she suffers several misfortunes after not listening to advice.

SO although children do not see Little Miss Stubborn cured, they do see how miserable her existence can be when she is stubborn and she truly is not a very nice person to be around. Admittedly I would have liked the author to show that Little Miss Stubborn did get sick at the end due to her eating so much scrambled egg but it leaves it open for discussion with your child. Let's face it, most of us know someone like her!
