More About the Author

Born in 1935 in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, Charles Roger Hargreaves is Britain's third best-selling author of all time having sold more than 100 million books, including all the familiar Mr. Men and Little Miss characters. Roger Hargreaves followed a career in advertising before becoming an author and illustrator.

He wrote the first Mr. Men book in 1971 when his 8 year old son, Adam Hargreaves, asked 'What does a tickle look like?' In response, Roger drew a figure with a round orange body and long, rubbery arms and Mr. Tickle was born.

He initially had difficulty finding a publisher, but once he did, the books became an instant success, selling over one million copies within three years and spawning a BBC animated television series, narrated and voiced by Arthur Lowe.

By 1976, Roger Hargreaves had quit his day job as creative director of a London advertising firm. In 1981, the Little Miss series of books began with Little Miss Bossy. They were also made into a television series in 1983, which was narrated by John Alderton and Pauline Collins, who voiced the Mr. Men and Little Misses respectively.

Although Roger Hargreaves wrote many other children's stories, including the Timbuctoo series of twenty-five books, John Mouse, and the Roundy and Squary books, he is best known for his Mr. Men and Little Miss books. With his wife, Christine, Roger had four children: Adam, Giles, and twins Sophie and Amelia who were the inspiration for Little Miss Twins.

Roger Hargreaves died suddenly of a stroke 11 September 1988. Adam has continued to write and draw the Mr. Men and Little Miss characters in new stories. In April 2004, Christine sold the rights to the Mr. Men characters to the entertainment group Chorion.

Little Miss Star wants to be famous but how is she going to manage it? One day she has a brainwave and gets on an airplane in order to go visit an author. Of course you do not know this to begin with, you just see her at the feet of someone at their house. Great excitement a few weeks later as she awaits the blind to go up on a shop window. Ta Da! Little Miss Star is famous as she is now featured in her own book.

Very cleverly written. Another delightful Little Miss book.

Just bought a selection of 20 of the Little Miss books for my grand-daughter. I plan to make her a quilt and give her the books to go with the quilt - story time in bed each evening. Labour of love, but the stories are so delightful. My summer sewing project when I go of in my motorhome!

This quick read is a great way to say goodnight to a youngster. Roger Hargreaves is wonderful at giving my restless bedtimer an easy way to settle into slumber. This book has a great surprise ending which makes bedtime reading a happy time.

My 3 year old just LOVES this book. She has almost the complete series of Little Miss Books and this is one of her favorites. It is very clever how the author incorporated himself into the book and how Little Miss Star came up with the ide to make herself "famous". Very enjoyable reading.

This book is... wow. It's so meta. I'm serious. I was reading through it because a friend's kid had it, and it basically blew my mind. No fourth wall here, folks. This thing can be read on many levels, and I am in my thirties, and I love it.
