More About the Author

Adam Hargreaves was born in 1963 in Surrey, England. He is the son of Roger Hargreaves who created the Mr. Men and Little Miss series. Adam was the inspiration for the series when, at the age of eight, he asked his father '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.
When Roger died suddenly in 1988, Adam Hargreaves took over as the author and illustrator of his father's popular Mr. Men series. Although he had been to art college, Adam saw art as a hobby until then and had never drawn the Mr. Men before. He admits that it took a few years to learn to draw them as his father drew in a very different style. His titles include Mr. Birthday and Little Miss Birthday, which were published in 2006 to celebrate 35 years of the Mr. Men, and a very successful range of sparkly Mr. Men titles which feature the Mr. Men and Little Misses with favourite fairytale characters.
In October 2006, Adam Hargreaves also created the first Little Miss character based on a real person when Little Miss Stella appeared in a limited edition of 1,000 books produced as invitations for Stella McCartney's Paris fashion show. When the rights to the Mr. Men characters were sold to the entertainment group Chorion in 2004, Adam joined the company as a creative consultant. When he is not working on the Mr. Men, he pursues his other ambition, which is oil painting.

After you read the title, you can probable guess as to the style this book is written in: think american pie meets the gaurdian's uni guide. This book would make a great present for somebody if your stuck for ideas, but probably isn't worth buying otherwise, unless your heavly into things like the "how to survive series"
My only problem with this book is that it could have been a bit longer, other than that it's great

I have recently finished reading a novel entitled 'Student!' (Zeus Publications) by Irish author, Andrew Moynihan. It cleverly depicts the thrills and spills of college life, combining comedy with tragedy in order to portray likeable young characters in their prime as victims of our time. It's simply a must for any 18 - 30 year old who is or was a student and can relate. Despite one or two flaws, namely some cliched characters, 'Student!' is high-octane, page-turning excitment! I got my copy online from Zeus Publications.
