Mr Men Deluxe Treasury : The Complete Collection Hardback
The Mr. Men have been tickling children for generations with their funny and charming antics.
This delightful collection includes the 47 classic stories in one volume.
From Mr. Tickle and his extraordinarily long arms to Mr. Nobody, the person who sort of was but wasn't, there are lots of fun stories to share and enjoy.
This gorgeous gift book comes in an embossed slipcase featuring Roger Hargreaves classic artwork and includes an introduction about the Mr. Men with insights from his family. Perfect for Mr. Men and Little Miss fans of all ages. 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.
The idea that a tickle could be a character in its own right sparked an idea in Roger's mind.
Roger was a successful copywriter but he wanted to do something that would enable him to work from home and spend more time with his four children.
He wondered if he could make a living writing and illustrating children's books so he wrote the first Mr Men titles: Mr Tickle, 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.
Mr Silly was his favourite Mr Men story and, according to his family, encapsulates his humour most closely.
