The Mr. Men Book Series By Roger Hargreaves

Updated on May 10, 2011

The Mr. Men Book Series

Mr. Men is a series that contains 48 children's books created by the author, Roger Hargreaves that started in 1971. Out of all of them only two were not published in English. This unique book series includes characters with names lijke Mr. Tickle and Mr. Happy, their names are given based on their personalities. After Hargreaves death in 1988, his son, Adam Hargreaves started writing and drawing new stories and characters including the ones his father had created before his death.

The Mr. Men Book Series History

The first six Mr. Men books were published in the U.K. in 1971, they were priced at 20 pence each. Mr. Tickle is the first ever character illustrated by Roger Hargreaves, the character came to his mind when his son, Adam, had told him how tickles looked like. The author responded by creating a character with a round, orange shape with long, bendy arms. Each book in The Mr. Men and Little Miss series had new characters based on a different single dominant personality trait to describe a simple moral lesson. Which was really great for children because the books easy-to-read stories and bright colorful drawings made them learn something about life's lessons in a fun way. For this the books were and are still popular today and will always be in the future for new generations of young readers to discover and love. It's sales for this book series sold over 10 million worldwide across the 28 countries.
