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.

2.0 out of 5 stars One for completists. 27 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
The weakest entry in the classic Mr Men series. The art is low quality and looks different from other books that Roger and Adam drew. The story is uneven and the writing lacks the wit, and punchiness I'm used to. Having said that the denouement is witty and nicely spun.
I suspect it wasn't written by Roger, and is either and early attempt by Adam, or another author/artist altogether. Or maybe Roger was having a bad day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr Under the Thumb 6 Nov 2011
By HeavyMetalMonty VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
When I read this book as a child, something about it troubled me, but I couldn't put my finger on what. It wasn't that the main character didn't look like the sort of valiant hero who'd jump in front of a speeding train to untie a loved one from the track. Appearances can be deceptive. In the depths of my mind, the question of why Mr Brave's name was inappropriate nagged at me for decades. Until now. I found my stash of Mr Men books, re-read them and everything became clear. Upon reading Mr. Brave (Mr. Men Classic Library) as an adult, I realised exactly why his name is less than suitable: he's actually Mr Under the Thumb. Sure, he wants to be brave, but doesn't everyone? Mr Brave is so worried about being late for tea at Little Miss Bossy's house that he can't relax enough to enjoy any courageous exploits. This plotline does touch upon a universal human truth: men whose significant others possess fiery tempers often can't relax, as they live in perpetual fear of their next tonguelashing. But surely a true Mr Brave wouldn't be party to such fears? Wouldn't he shrug his shoulders at Little Miss Bossy and tell her where to stick her bratty attitude? Now that would be brave!

As well as being submissive, Mr Brave displays signs of serious mental derangement. En route to Little Miss Bossy's house, he encounters Mr Messy, who has fallen into a river. Mr Brave helps him out. Fair enough. Pretty brave, in fact. His behaviour becomes incomprehensible, however, when he discovers Little Miss Somersault, a beautiful leggy blonde who wants to play with him (her exact words). Now any sensible red-blooded Mr Man, when faced with a proposition like that, wouldn't need to be asked twice. But what does Mr Brave do?
