Miss Bossy in the books.

The first edition of Little Miss Bossy

Little Miss Bossy is so bossy, she told Mr. Nosey to mind his own business, Mr. Noisy to shut up, and Mr. Happy to take his smile off his face, so Wilfred the Wizard gives her a pair of boots who have a mind of their own and don't listen to her because she is so bossy. After this, Little Miss Bossy learns her lesson and is never bossy again.

The Mr. Men Show

Her hat is pointy on the bottom sides and it floats, her flower and the head is attached to the side of her hat, now gains eyelashes, and is a darker shade of blue. The stripe on her hat is light green. She runs her own Arts & Crafts Camp in "Art & Crafts" (only in US version).
