Story

Madame Moi-Je front cover

Little Miss Show-Off meets Mr. Happy, who is smiling. She says she can smile better at him, despite not being able to.

She walks on and meets Little Miss Shy, who is blushing. She tells Little Miss Shy that she doesn't blush, which causes Little Miss Shy to start crying. A wizard was watching this go down, and decided to teach Little Miss Show-Off a lesson.

The Wizard disguises himself as Mr. Messy, and tells Little Miss Show-Off that she can't get herself as messy as he is. Little Miss Show-Off takes up the challenge, and rolls in a muddle of mud to prove herself. She gets very messy, but feels very proud of herself.

This continues when The Wizard disguises himself as Mr. Bump. He tells Little Miss Show-Off that she does not have as bad luck as him. She rams her head into a street light to prove him wrong, and gets badly injured in the process.

The final time The Wizard disguises himself, he turns into Mr. Greedy. He tells Little Miss Show-Off that she can never eat as much as him. She goes to a restaurant where she eats an extraordinarily large amount of food. She gets very very sick from it, and does not feel so proud of herself after all the pain she put herself through.

Little Miss Show-Off learned her lesson, and decided that she would never try to show off or be better than anyone else ever again. The Wizard got met by her a day later, and asked her what she will change her name to as a result.
