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.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Daydreamers of Any Age 6 Nov 2011
By HeavyMetalMonty VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book will resonate with all daydreamers. I remember reading it as a child and relating to it on every level. Now, still a daydreamer, I relate to it every bit as much. Jack (a human child) is bored in his history lesson. Gazing through an open window, he sees Mr Daydream (a blue-fluffy-cloud being). Mr Daydream and Jack embark on adventures that take them to every continent, all in the space of one history lesson. This highlights one important truth about daydreaming: it can bend the laws of physics and the physical Universe. Therein lies the power of dreams.

Like all the Mr Men books, Mr. Daydream (Mr. Men Classic Library) is beautifully illustrated. One picture, however, continues to trouble me: in the third picture of Jack, he has no mouth. Hargreaves was too much of a perfectionist for this to have been an inadvertent oversight, so the mouthless Jack must be designed to symbolise something. One of these days I'll figure out what.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 16 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the book was very good because it's exciting and you don't know where they are going to go next and you don't know if Mr Daydream is real. This review is by Micah.

The book was very exciting, it had action characters and it was fabulous. This part of the review was by Maia.
