Blast from the past Apr 10, 2007
Mr. Pine's Purple House was my favorite book growing up and when I found it on this site it also recommended this one. I didn't have it growing up but I did get it from the library so I bought this one too. My kids love them both and we read them often.
Mr. Pine loses his glasses and gets the town's signs all mixed up! Funny!
Its gets better with time Jan 12, 2007
Of all the stories we hear/read as a kid, some we remember more than others. When I was a kid, I didn't understand why this book would remain so vividly in my memory for more than 30 years, but now I know.
The rhythm of the book is upbeat and enjoyable. While the graphics lack lustre, looking deeply in them reveals a whole layer of humor that is best understand as an adult. For example, The mixed up sign over the mayor's office said this way to the zoo, and the mixed up sign over the bank read bread.
I use this book to read to my 8th grade students to promote critical thinking and deeper understanding. I read it to my 4 year old daughter for the light and entertaining story. I'm glad the story is still around for the next generation to benefit from.

I am so glad that I found this book and now get a chance to share it with my sons. It was my favorite growing up.
What a wonderful memory! Sep 5, 2002
This was one of my favorite books from childood (late 60s/early 70s)! What a blast from the past! I'm so glad that it is now available for a new generation of kids.
I did not realize until recently that the humor is not lost on adults.
I highly recommend this book for all children! It's so innocent and would be a welcome change of pace from all the grown-up stuff that kids have to deal with at earlier and earlier ages.
My favorite and most memorable book as a child and adult. Aug 15, 2002
I'm glad this book is available again for me to share with my children. As an adult it is still my favorite. I have been looking for this book for years and today I received it as a Birthday gift. I highly recommend Mr Pine's Mixed Up Sign's for everyone. IT'S A MUST HAVE. Buy it and you (the adult) and your children will enjoy for mnany years.
