About the Author
It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves’ son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. The idea that a tickle could be a character in its own right sparked an idea in Roger’s mind. Roger was a successful copywriter but he wanted to do something that would enable him to work from home and spend more time with his four children. He wondered if he could make a living writing and illustrating children’s books so he wrote the first Mr Men titles: Mr Tickle, Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump.
The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh. Mr Silly was his favourite Mr Men story and, according to his family, encapsulates his humour most closely. Sadly Roger passed away in 1988, but his son Adam took over the series, introducing new characters and exciting new adventures. Roger once said, ‘I feel very happy to think that when the Mr Men and Little Misses are 100 years old, their readers will always be five.’--This text refers to the paperback edition.

My daughter kept pointing to characters wondering who they were, and in some instances the characters weren't introduced in the story (for example, mr bump and Mr messy appeared on a page but weren't referenced in the text, bringing up lots of questions from my daughter). Its years since I read the books myself so am not familiar with the characters, so I ended up having to Google them to find out so I could tell her!
It would be good to have a reference page at the back with all the characters and their names like they used to have in the individual character books. Because there are so many characters (and some look nearly identical to one another so are easily mistaken), I feel this is probably a book for mr men/little miss fans who know the books and characters well.
