Mr. Men as Social Critique
May 13, 2013 | by Sadie Stein
We meet Mr Messy—a man whose entire day-to-day existence is the undiluted expression of his individuality. His very untidiness is a metaphor for his blissful and unselfconscious disregard for the Social Order. Yes, there are times when he himself is a victim of this individuality—as when he trips over a brush he has left on his garden path—but he goes through life with a smile on his face.
This series of reviews from 2010 is, in a word, brilliant.
