Mr Men

This series of books and characters is very famous and has been since the early 1970’s. The author is Roger Hargreaves who wrote his first book Mr Tickle after being questioned by his son what a tickle looked like. This simple query led to the birth of some truly unique characters and publication of six Mr Men books in August 1971.

The original cast were Mr Tickle who has very long arms and is a tickler by nature, Mr Greedy who has a very large pink tum because he eats all of the time, Mr Nosey who pokes his big green nose into everybody’s business, Mr Happy who is yellow, fat, round and well, err, happy, Mr Bump all bandaged up and very clumsy, and finally spiky blue Mr Sneeze who sneezes a lot.
