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
Published on August 10th 1971, Mr. Bump is the sixth book in Roger Hargreaves' Mr. Men series. The series follows a selection of characters whose surnames define their characteristics. Mr. Bump is accident prone, causing himself continuous injury while undertaking everyday tasks.

When we first meet Mr. Bump he summarily walks into a lamp post. The tragic story continues as he endeavors to fix the chimney pot on his house, which has sustained damage in a storm. While retrieving a ladder, he smashes 2 windows on his house, worsening the situation. We are then given an employment history for Mr. Bump, in the past he has worked as a farmer, a bus conductor, a carpenter and as a postman. He has been dismissed from these roles for negligent behavior, disregard of Health & Safety guidelines and an inability to perform tasks without accident.

Disenchanted with employment, he then takes a holiday to the beach. While there, he falls off a boat, gets his foot stuck in a bucket and falls in a hole. Finally, Mr. Bump finds a job that suits his talents - walking around and bumping into trees on Mr. Barley's orchard, making the apples fall off the trees.

Mr. Bump is the story of an individual's struggle to deal with an un-diagnosed medical condition caused by a neurochemical or hormonal imbalance, a certain style of thought process or, in some cases, as a result of traumatic experiences: Clinical Depression.

Through close examination we can surmise Mr. Bump exhibits many of the symptoms of clinical depression from the inception of the biography.

I'm not a massive fan of the Mr Men books, but this one is really quite good. It reads very well and bears re-reading several times. My son likes it because he quite often bumps into things so he relates to it. You can buy Mr Bump plasters, and when my son hurts a finger he always says "Mr Bump".

Mr Bump is always bumping into things, and it tends to get him into trouble. Thats why he's covered in bandages. One of the original six Mr Men characters, Mr Bump has the Mr Men charm, and the pictures are so cute

This is the best book in the mister man series. The story really makes me laugh because he has the same accidents my little brother has.
