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.

It's ok but not quite the real story. Recommended to very small kids. Any older should be read the real Christmas Carol story. Also hate the ending!

Sought some festive Mr Men books, bought this amongst others. Although these are new additions to the orignial set they don't differ too much in style and content. Would happily read a Mr Man book every night to my son! In fact I normally do!

Bought for a five year Mr Men fan. Had to be read by an adult because of the number of words to enable the story to be read in one go. The child loves it. Very colourful and a pleasant story.

As an avid fan of every Mr Men and Little Miss book ever, this Christmas I was delighted to see that there was another new one out! I really enjoyed this book. As always it was beautifully illustrated and the story was an original take on the Dickens classic.

I am no longer a child but I still find these books as interesting and fun as I did when I was eight years old.

I hope you enjoy it, like I did.

Story isn't captivating for the children, one read and they've not looked at it since, whereas a "normal" mr and little miss books are a big hit.

My son has the complete Mr Men library and we have read them all hundreds of times so it is great to now have some new titles to add on.
