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 Poor Mr Worry 29 Dec 2003
Mr Worry worries all the time. Then, even when all his worries are taken away, he still finds something to worry about. The pictures are adorable

2.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the text 16 Mar 2014
By A Kant
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Decent story but another one of those Mr Men books where the text runs across the illustrations in a fine typeface, making it really hard to read. If they can get it right on most of them then why can't they get it right on all of them?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 28 Nov 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my 6 year old who is a bit of a worrier. It's a bit easy for him but nevertheless he liked it. He did say that he doesn't worry quite as much as Mr Worry which I think he found quite reassuring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Worry 16 Jun 2000
By ProfEmily - Published on
Mr. Worry worries about everything in his life, in his friend's lives, and in the world around him. But when Mr. Worry meets up with a friendly Wizard, the Wizard makes all of his worries go away. Mr. Worry finally has something to smile about! But it's not long before Mr. Worry is back to his old habits: worrying about not having anything to worry about! This is a very cute book, as are all of the Mr. Men books by Roger Hargreaves.
5.0 out of 5 stars Kids Love These! 10 Jan 2014

These are small little books. Kids love them, and will read them over and over. The ones the dad wrote are a little better than the son, but both are still pretty good.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, wish it was bigger, but you get what you pay for! 6 July 2012

This is such a cute book for kids. I loved them when I was a kid. It came very tiny, but I only spent a couple bucks for it, so it is still a good deal.
