Product Description

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.’

I got this for my Lil nephew who loves all of the Mr. Men. I think it's a great gift, especially if working towards getting the whole set. But I would say if wanting the whole set, be it all in one go in the complete collects rather than buying all the books individually. It works out way cheaper doing it that way!

Meet Mr. Impossible who truly can do all the impossible things you cannot! Like what, for example? Well, Mr. Impossible can walk up trees! Can you? How about becoming invisible? Can you fly by yourself and not in a plane? What about standing on no hands? William, the little boy featured in this story is truly amazed at all the "impossible" things, Mr. Impossible can do.

Being so impressed, William invites Mr. Impossible to school. How will that turn out? After his eventful day, William goes home to his parents where he tells them about someone who can do anything in the world. Their reply? "Really William, you're impossible!" (Hee! Hee!)

This is a book that dreams are made of. As children read this, their imaginations soar with all kinds of "impossibilities"! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from a family that LOVES the Mr. Men books!

It says that it's impossible. It says that lots of things are impossible. And then it proceeds to list them - the things that are impossible. And then by way of a narrative innovation it selects our hero Mr Impossible as the anthropomorphism of man's limits. He's not a real man (he frequently appears upside down with no shame) but he WORKS.

But should we be determined that there is impossibility in these things ? What is impossible ?

I present that we should take a deep breath, clasp our fist to the pit of our stomach, and step into his world to see. Bravo Roger Hargreaves for such a sparkle of senescence.

My daughter loves the Mr Men books, and having most recently bought 'Little Miss Naughty', we had to get the starring supporting character's book! Quality book and recommended for all young readers.
