Mr Greedy Mr Men and Little MissS Mr Greedy Wants to eat everything in sight How will he ever stick to a low calorie diet This is probably my least favorite Mr book so far I wish it was about not being greedy and less about not being fat I hate the page that shows a smaller Mr Greedy and then says something like that suits him a lot better doesn't it I mean I think he was fine both ways I could see this book making kids self conscious even if they have the smallest amount of baby weight which I don't think is okay All in all this book could have been about not sharing or many other things but they choose to go about it this way and I don't think it was the right choice at all
