Roger Hargreaves

Born Charles Roger Hargreaves on 9 May, 1935, Roger Hargreaves is the creator of the Mr. Men and Little Miss books - surely among the most famous characters in children's books. Britain's third bestselling author of all time with over 100 million books sold, Roger worked in advertising before becoming a children's author.

With famous faces including Mr. Happy, Mr. Bump and Little Miss Sunshine, Roger's characters are bright, bold and have featured on hundreds of items of merchandise and in their own animated television series. The Mr. Men were created in 1971 when Roger's son Adam (who has since taken over the series as author) asked him to draw what a tickle looked like. The result was Mr. Tickle! Roger followed his initial run of Mr. Men characters with the Little Miss books, starting with Little Miss Bossy in 1981.
