Mr. Spendy is a very obscure Mr. Men book. Unlike like the other Mr. Men and Little Miss books, this book was made and published by somebody other than Roger Hargreaves. It was published by Kathleen Smith and Susan Reed for the Huddersfield & Bradford Building Society. As a result, it's not canon to the actual Mr. Men series.
Mr. Spendy was a jolly fellow who liked to spend his money, never saving for a rainy day. He was very sad as he could not go on holiday like his good friend Mr. Thrifty and his family could, as he had no money. After coming back from holiday, Mr. Thrifty showed him the error of his wasteful ways and helped Mr. Spendy learn to save money.
