Story

Little Miss Greedy in the books

Little Miss Greedy certainly was. Greedy that is! For breakfast every day she eats 66 succulent sizzling sausages, which the narrator finds hard to say (though she counters this by saying it perfectly fine in the TV adaptation) followed by 23 thick tasty slices of tempting toast with marmalade, and to finish, 12 cups of tea. When she gets a letter from her cousin, Mr. Greedy, inviting her to his birthday party at 4 o'Clock next Wednesday, she is delighted! On the next Wednesday, Little Miss Greedy sets off in her car with Mr. Greedy's birthday present, and when she arrives at his roly poly house, they have a huge dinner party!

Trivia

  • Out of the 7 deadly sins, Miss Greedy represents Gluttony.
  • Her book was formerly named Little Miss Plump up until Hargreaves' death in 1988, which happened around the time when the word "plump" was deemed too offensive in the UK.
  • She was Mr. Greedy's friend when she was known as Little Miss Plump. However, because of her name getting changed to Little Miss Greedy, Mr. Greedy is now her cousin.
  • She is the last Little Miss to be published in 1981.
  • She is the first Little Miss to get her name changed, but the third character to get her name changed in the US (with Mr. Jelly first and Mr. Mean second.)
  • She is the only character to get her name changed permanently.
  • Even though Little Miss Greedy is the thirteenth in the Little Miss series, she is placed twenty-third in the Little Miss Library, between Little Miss Tidy and Little Miss Fickle which were the twenty-fifth and twentieth books in the Little Miss series, respectively, though they are respectively placed twenty-second and twenty-fourth in the Little Miss Library.
