About her[]


Somersault book

Little Miss Somersault in the books

Little Miss Somersault is incredibly agile. While she goes for a walk, she cartwheels instead. Instead of going through the front door, she climbs up the roof first. Instead of sitting in a chair, she balances on the back of it. Then she jumps over Mr. Small's house, and talk on the telephone with one leg up. The other day, she gets the leaf off of Mr. Worry's roof, but he has the ladder. Little Miss Somersault doesn't need a ladder while she climbs up on the roof. Then, Mr. Skinny paints the roof of his house, but Mr. Bump bumps into the ladder, causing the paint to spill, but Mr. Skinny was rescued by Miss Somersault.

The next day, everyone has heard about her daring deeds. Mr. Snooty called her on the phone about the umbrella stuck in the chimney, and expects her in five minutes. However, it took no time to climb onto Mr. Snooty's roof, and get onto the chimney, but she was afraid of heights. Then, Mr. Tickle brought Miss Somersault back to the ground, and looks for someone else to tickle. Then, someone talked to her on the phone about the hat has been blown off onto the roof, and her face turns pale about who it was on the phone. But it was Mr. Small, and she felt relief, and off she somersaults.

  • Her ponytail is pointed up.
  • She is similar to Mr. Tall, but her legs are shorter and more flexible, also they're both blue.
  • She is the tallest Little Miss.
  • She originated from France. (This probably explains why Mr. Tickle appeared in this book with a green hat. In the French Mr. Men and Little Miss books, Mr. Tickle has a green hat.)
  • She can out-run a cheetah
  • She is the first Little Miss character to appear in the English Mr. Men Series. Not counting Little Miss Bossy who wasn’t shown but spoke.
  • Like Mr. Brave, she is afraid of heights.
  • Her theme song is "Bounce! Jump! Cartwheel!"
  • She along with Little Miss Brave and Little Miss Explorer are the most tomboyish little misses.
  • Her leg length changes periodically (it can be almost the same as Mr. Tall or slightly longer than the average Mr. Men and Little Misses)
  • Sometimes she has joints on her knees.
