Mr. Busy doesn't understand Mr. Slow and doesn't try to. This is a rather old book -- some of the humor doesn't come off like it might have at one point. Why is Mr. Busy so busy? What does he feel like he needs to accomplish? Is there something deeper going on regarding Mr. Slow's reluctance to get out of bed? I'm partly joking, but I really did spend of the book just feeling really, really bad for Mr. Slow. Hopefully he's having a more chill day than the one described here.

Hargreaves' Illustrations = A+, however.

Mr Busy drives his neighbour Mr Slow up the wall. Well, under the bed, anyway.
Good story told in Hargreaves' usual amusing style.
My two year old loves this book.
