4279. Little Miss Sunshine
Little Miss Sunshine is the fourth book in the Little Miss series. There was a king who lived in a castle in Miseryland. Little Miss Sunshine was on holiday. She saw a sign saying, "This way to Miseryland", so she went to Miseryland and saw a guard at the bridge door. Little Miss Sunshine gave the guard a big smile; he took her to see the King of Miseryland. She had an idea, and Little Miss Sunshine and the king went back to her car. She made a new sign saying, "Laughter Land"; she laughed, and the king laughed too.
Little Miss Sunshine is a regular in the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show. She kept her looks and personality (except her hair and nose changed from yellow to light tan) and ran a morning show called "Good Morning Dillydale" with Mr. Happy. Her house was pink with a flowerbed, and flowers on the house as well. In the UK and US versions, she is voiced by Alicyn Packard, Jo Wyatt (season one) and Emma Tate (season two). Little Miss Sunshine's name and picture have been featured on many clothing designs, including track pants and sweaters.
Little Miss Sunshine has been published under the alternative titles of Madame Bonheur (French), Doña Sonrisas (Spanish), Unsere Sonja Sonnenschein (German), Mevrouwtje Zonnestraal (Dutch), Η Κυρία Γελαστούλα (Greek), 樂觀小姐 (Taiwan), 밝아양 (Korean) and Menina Alegria (Portuguese).
