The Mr Men and Little Miss Adventures take Roger Hargreaves' beloved characters on amazing trips to other worlds and different times where they have all kinds of funny and exciting escapades. The books are a new larger format, so that you can enjoy their inimitable stories in even greater scale.

Have you collected all the Adventures: Mr. Men Adventure with Dinosaurs Mr. Men Adventure in Egypt Mr. Men Adventure with Knights Mr. Men Adventure with Pirates Mr. Men Adventure on Wheels Mr. Men Adventure in the Jungle Mr. Men Under the Sea Mr. Men Adventure in Space 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. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by 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, which is probably why his own favourite character is Mr Silly.
