    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars have a nose at this 18 May 2004
    Format:Paperback
    As you'd expect, Mr Nosy is a very inquisitive fellow, who cannot help but poke his rather large, green nose, into other peoples' affairs.
    When you think "nosy", you think irritating, right? Not our friend Mr Nosy, he's really quite lovable and its quite obvious that he just can't help himself.
    Like all the Mr Men books,the story is just the right length, not too short but not too long to become boring.The only trouble being is that once you buy one book you just have to keep going until you've bought the whole collection.
    I'm not giving Mr Nosy 5 stars as its a bit of a shame that he doesn't meet any other Mr Men in the story, only real people, which is quite a mystery to me- however,its a bit of a mystery as to why I'm sitting here writing a Mr Nosy review in the first place.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! Always loved. 20 Dec. 2010
    By PoBean
    Format:Paperback
    Mr Nosey is a classic Mr Man book, loved by me as a kid (a few years ago now!) and loved by my kids, nieces and nephews since. All the Mr Men books have a moral; this one is obviously to not poke your nose into other people's business. The moral is delivered in a fun way and the characters are so great, simply drawn, bright and instantly recognisable, with obvious features that represent their name.....you can't help but love them!

    For younger children, each story is just short enough to read to them at bedtime and not too long so it holds their interest. For older children, they can either read them to themselves or you can read them a few each bedtime.

    My children are 3 and 7 and both love them.

    Buy and enjoy, as a story with your children, or a nostalgic trip down memory lane!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bed time stories. 14 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    My seven year old loves the Mr men books, he always comments on the story afterwards giving his opinion. I'm sure he'll think twice before being nosey.
