There was nothing Morris liked more than sticking his head in a bucket of water then sloshing it all over the floor. He had a great big mop-head that sloshed lots of water and as a result, he made a terrible, terrible mess.

“This floor needs mopping,” he said. It didn’t… but try telling Morris that as he dashed to the cupboard – the WRONG cupboard – and pulled out a big bag of flour.

Flour? Not soap powder??

“Whoops! Silly me!” he said, realising his mistake but then went and dropped it and it spilled all over the floor.

“Now this floor REALLY does need mopping!” he grinned happily and, grabbing Beryl the bucket by the hand, he dashed to the sink and filled her up with water.

“OWCH. That’s too hot!” she squealed and tripped and spilled the hot water all over the floury floor.

Oh dear. Now what do you get when you mix flour and water?

You get a BIG STICKY MESS. And the more Morris mopped the bigger and stickier the mess got.

“That’s not just a mess,” said Beryl, “That’s a pastry!” And by now the pastry was getting harder – and harder!

“Help! I’m stuck!” wailed Morris as indeed he was.

Freddie the fly came along and landed next to him. “That’s a jolly fine mess you’ve got yourself into,” he laughed, “Is there anything I can do to help?”

‘There sure is,” said Morris miserably. “Please get me out of here.”

“No sooner said than done,” smiled Freddie and whistling an ear-piercing whistle he called to his fly-friends who were hovering all over the ceiling.

They laughed when they saw Morris’ predicament.

“Do you fancy a bit of Morris en Croute?” asked Freddie and his friends didn’t need asking twice as they nose-dived into the pastry.

“What are we waiting for!” they chorused as poor Morris found himself covered in flies.

NIBBLE NIBBLE NIBBLE.

But when Morris realised what they were doing – eating him out his predicament – he felt a whole lot happier. Soon he was free, and the flies returned to the ceiling.

“What’s going on?” asked Wally the wellington coming in from the garden bringing with him a trail of very muddy footprints.

Morris grinned when he saw the muddy footprints, “Mud!” he thought. “Now mud I can deal with!”

Everyone pitched in to help.

“More water,” sloshed Beryl who’d clambered up to the sink.

“More soap,” laughed Freddie and his friends.

“Steady guys,” said Morris sounding worried as the bubbles rose higher and higher.

“Can someone open the window?”

Beryl opened the window and a great blast of wind swept the roomful of bubbles out and up into the sky.

“Where’s Freddie?” asked Morris when the bubbles had cleared.

“UP HERE!” replied Freddie from the garden, “I’m trapped in this bubble!”

Morris looked up as a really big bubble was taking Freddie off into the clouds. “HELP! Get me out of here! I don’t like being a fly who can’t fly!”

“Head for the apple tree!” called Morris running after him.

“How??” wailed Freddie who was now upside-down.

Elsie the elephant was sitting on her swing in the apple tree and realised poor Freddie’s predicament. “Maybe I can help,” she cooed in her soft velvety voice as she climbed off her swing and raised up her trunk in Freddie’s direction. She gently breathed in and drew Freddie back down as she did so.

“There…” she said with Freddie poised on the end of her trunk. “Now off you go into the apple tree.”

She let Freddie go, the bubble went POP and Freddie sighed in relief as a consequence.

Elsie smiled and settled back down on her swing again. “It has to be said,” she said as she swung back and forth, “there are no flies on me!”

And looking at the size of those big waggy ears, there were never likely to be!

About Morris the Messy Mop

Morris the Messy Mop with Bubbles from the Children's Book

Morris the Messy Mop is one of the principal characters featured in the original (1980) first six books published by Thurman Publishing (Mr Men). Who doesn’t like making pastry? It’s just flour and water but for Morris, it’s a disaster.

Reaching in the cupboard – the WRONG cupboard – Morris empties flour all over the kitchen floor.

Then, using lots of water he tries to clean it up but in doing so, it becomes a horrible mess and Morris gets stuck fast.

Freddie the fly and his pals come to the rescue, but it doesn’t end there and it takes an elephant (an elephant?) to save the day.

Morris name meaning. The name Morris is of Anglo-Norman origin deriving from the ‘de Marisco’ line (meaning “of the marsh” in modern English). Morris name meaning on Wikipedia
