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

Short Stories Character, Nigel The Niggly Napkin

N. Is For Nigel

Is it a bee? No, it was Nigel turning himself into a bird or a bee because – being a napkin – he could fold himself into any shape he liked. And it always had to be ‘just so’ for Nigel. Perfectly straight lines and sharp creases, which made him irritatingly…Niggly.

READ PERCY’S BOOK

Percy The Peeping Pot Plant

Percy the Peeping Pot Plant is one of the principal characters featured in the original (1980) first six books published by Thurman Publishing (Mr Men). 

Wanting to always amuse the parents/teachers too, there has to be something in the story to also make them laugh.

The label on the bottle Percy is given reads ‘Supa-Grow plant food. Instructions overleaf.’ Okay, it may not be that funny, but it has a semblance of adult wit and if that doesn’t work (as well as the plant food) one can always resort to good old slapstick which is mostly what the story is about.

Peep meaning. A quick or furtive look or glance.

Percy name meaning. A short form of the given name PercivalPerseus Wikipedia.

Queenie was a quilt who spent most of her time resting. On the whole, she was happy except for her one big problem. A quilt should be fat and warm and snugly but Queenie wasn’t. She was cold and thin and quivery.

READ QUEENIE’S BOOK

Queenie The Quivering Quilt

Queenie is one of the principal characters featured in the original (1980) first six books published by Thurman Publishing (Mr Men).

Queenie is a dear, sweet old lady and her story concerns her need to find something to eat that will make her fatter because, as it explains in the story, a quilt needs to be fat and warm and snugly.

Queenie appears quite frequently in some of the other stories and is consistently kind and patient, if not a little timid.

Queenie name meaning. The name Queenie is an affectionate, or pet use, of the term queen – and is thought to be derived from the Old English word ‘cwen’, meaning ‘woman’ rather than a reference to the monarch or his wife.  Queenie name Wikipedia
