Little Miss Sunshine in the books

Little Miss Sunshine First Edition

Little Miss Sunshine first edition

There was a king who lived in a castle in Miseryland, the most miserable place in the world where everyone was sad and cried every day. The king was even more miserable than anyone else in Miseryland, and sat on his throne all day long crying about how unhappy he was. According to his rules, laughing, smiling, and being happy were not allowed. One day, Little Miss Sunshine was coming home from holiday when she saw a sign saying 'To Miseryland'. She never heard of this place before, so she decided to go to Miseryland. Once she entered, she saw a sign which forbids smiling and laughing. She went to the castle and decided to talk to the king about the strange rules. Just then, she was stopped by a guard at the bridge door. She smiles at the guard, who arrested her just for smiling (which he claims is a serious crime) and took her to see the king, who was still crying his eyes out. The guard told the king that Little Miss Sunshine smiled at him. Little Miss Sunshine laughed, but this caused the king to cry even more. Little Miss Sunshine wondered if the king would ever like to be happy, and the king said he would, but he couldn't because of Miseryland's rule that being happy was not allowed. Little Miss Sunshine thought for a moment and brought the king to her car, driving him back to the picket sign. With a large pen, she renamed Miseryland to Laughterland and changed the rules so smiling and laughing were allowed. However, the king still didn't know how to be happy because he never tried it, so Little Miss Sunshine taught him to smile and laugh. The king, no longer miserable, decided to proclaim himself as the king of Laughterland. Little Miss Sunshine then went home and met Mr. Happy, who was on his evening stroll. She told him that she just got back from Miseryland. Mr. Happy didn't know there was such a place, but Little Miss Sunshine reassured him that there wasn't a place like that anymore.

Little Miss Sunshine is one of the happiest people in the world, besides Mr. Happy, Mr. Cheerful, and Little Miss Giggles.

The Mr. Men Show[]


Little Miss Sunshine is a recurring character in the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show.

She kept her looks and personality except her nose and hair change from yellow to light tan, and runs a morning show called 'Good Morning Dillydale' with her partner, Mr. Happy. Her voice is very perky. Her house is pink, with a flowerbed, and flowers on the house as well.

She is voiced by Alicyn Packard in the US dub and by Jo Wyatt (Season 1) and Emma Tate (Season 2) in the UK dub. She is first seen in Physical.
