Can you guess which Mr Men book came first?
The Birth of the Mr Men
The Mr Men and Little Miss series of books have been enjoyed by children and parents alike since the early 1970’s. Created by Yorkshire-man Roger Hargreaves (where all of the best people are born!) who realised his dream to write and illustrate children’s books.
Roger Hargreave’s first book was inspired by a breakfastime coverstion with his first son Adam and Mr Tickle was born.
What does a Tickle look like?, Adam aged 8
The series then grew and grew and a million copies of the simple, colourful and humourous Mr Men books were sold within thier first 3 years of publication. The Mr Men collection was followed in the early 1980’s, by the birth of the Little Miss Collection.
The brand contiunes to go from strength to strength and is now supplemented by lots of themed stories featuring our favourite Mr Men and Little Miss characters. There are spooky stories for Halloween, special birthday themed editions and our favourite the Mr Men Christmas Collection.
