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.’

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!
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.
Would recommend this item for purchase.
No issues at all.
