Little Miss Bad was not good. Far from it. In fact as far as you
can get, which is a long way. The Mr Men and Little Miss have been
delighting children for generations with their charming and funny
antics. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little
Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up.
Have you met them all? 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. Mr Tickle, the
first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by 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, which is probably why his own favourite character
is Mr Silly.
