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.

    Little Miss Twins live in Twoland. They do everything in pairs, and say things twice. Two Little Misses is twice the fun. The Mr Men and Little Miss have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up. Have you met them all? 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. When the first Mr Men books were published they became an instant hit. 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.
