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.

Format: Paperback
with the newest set having 50 books in it.

They come in a sturdy cardboard drawer presentation box that slides out fairly easily, although you cannot get the later books out without removing the earlier ones first. I am also not sure how long the box would last, it is well built but may eventually tear/collapse if tugged open by enthusiastic small children too often.

All of the existing 50 Mr Men books are in the set, from 1971 through to present day, although there are none of the 33 Little Miss books. The spines of the first 39 books line up with 'My Mr Men Library' written across them along with the worm that frequently turns up in the stories.

Other than that they are the same format, shape and size as they have always been and being timeless are as suitable for new generations to discover as they ever have been, but much cheaper than buying them as separates.

Have to say this is one of the best things I've ever bought for my son given the vast amount of time value he gets out of it. He enjoys going through the books looking at all of the pictures before he carefully decides which one I actually have to read. The stories are all very fun and have a bit of a teaching process as well - Mr happy always comes out on top whereas characters like Mr Mean and Mr Grumpy see the error of their ways and change to become good.
An expensive initial outlay as Childrens books go but well worth it in my opinion as your kids will just come back over and over to these books.

This complete series of books was an instant hit with my son.

Although not yet reading the pictures are colourful and consist of many shapes and basic objects keeping him interested whilst the stories are being read.
All stories are in plain and simple English which is ideal for beginners but still interesting enough for the more advanced reader (I still love them!).

Was very pleased with this item, although know a couple of people who have bought the same thing for less from a book club. I thought I had got a bargain until I spoke to them & they had paid 25% less.
Quality box set though which I have bought as a new baby present for bedtime reading.

As a teacher in English I just love Mr. Rush.
What is so special about these books? I teach Danish 4 th. graders and this is their first year with English education. They enjoy learning about the different personalities these books describes and enhanse their vocabulary while giving them a good laugh.

What child could have a fulfilled childhood without owning the Mr Men series? Hargreaves has got it just right, the books capture the attention and imagination of any child and adults alike! If your child doesn't already own these, it is essential that you open up their world, now!
