Yet Again Hollywood Changes Entire Plot Of Book

Little Miss Sunshine I was surprised that of all of Roger Hargreaves creations, Little Miss Sunshine was the first to be adapted into a major motion picture. Those in my generation who remember the first release of the Mr Men books will agree with me that the arrival of the Little Misses was seen to be a bit arriviste. An attempt to cash in on the original sequence to a new market. Perhaps the Mr Men were inherently sexist idea but I always felt the Little Misses were cash-ins – often duplicating the attributes and powers* of their male counterparts. Admittedly the Little Misses seemed to play in a sandbox of greater continuity, as evinced by the book of Little Miss Sunshine, where Mr Happy rocks up.
