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.’

Poor Mr. Forgetful, he really cannot remember anything. When he gets up of a morning, he walks into his closet thinking it is the bathroom! When in the Post Office, Mrs. Parcel has to remind him what it is that he has come in for. However his biggest embarrassment comes when, on his way home, the local policeman asks him to give Farmer Fields a message that one of his sheep is loose in the lane. Even though he repeats the message to himself several times, poor Mr. Forgetful forgets it when he finally finds Farmer Fields and tells him there is a goose asleep in the rain. Farmer Fields does not own a goose so is baffled as to what Mr. Forgetful means.
How does the 'mystery' get solved? Read this delightful and amusing story to your child and enjoy!
