About the Author
It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves’ son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. The idea that a tickle could be a character in its own right sparked an idea in Roger’s mind. Roger was a successful copywriter but he wanted to do something that would enable him to work from home and spend more time with his four children. He wondered if he could make a living writing and illustrating children’s books so he wrote the first Mr Men titles: Mr Tickle, Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh. Mr Silly was his favourite Mr Men story and, according to his family, encapsulates his humour most closely. Sadly Roger passed away in 1988, but his son Adam took over the series, introducing new characters and exciting new adventures. Roger once said, ‘I feel very happy to think that when the Mr Men and Little Misses are 100 years old, their readers will always be five.’

To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. Little Miss Neat was one of her picks.
I was surprised that my daughter picked this book because it has some aspets that could concern a sensitive child. Let me explain. Little Miss Neat was a very tidy person. She was really good at cleaning up her home. Even when she cleaned up a mess, she picked up after herself. One day, she went away on vacation. Mr. Muddle came to visit while she was away, and somehow got into the house. He made himself some tea, and left everything in the wrong place. When Little Miss Neat returned, she could tell from the misplaced items that Mr. Muddle must have visited. A telephone call confirms that.
Would your child like the idea of having someone be able to get into your house? I guess Mr. Muddle isn't too threatening. In fact, this book may subtly reduce your child's fear of unexpected events.
On the other hand, the book is hilarious! Little Miss Neat has a real problem with compulsiveness. My daughter used to find her very funny. Her favorite gag was Little Miss Neat spending a whole day polishing her suitcase.
Mr. Muddle is sort of a backwards fellow.Read more ›
