Mr. Tall is the thirty-first book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves.


Mr. Tall hates his oversized legs. He meets Mr. Small, and when Mr. Small goes for a swim, Mr. Tall can't, but three other Mr. Men teach him that oversized body parts can be helpful. Mr. Tall decides his long legs are great for walking, and while Mr. Tall made it home quickly, Mr. Small took a year to get home.

On the 1997 Mr. Men Show, his legs are thicker and farther apart than in the book.
