SWING TAG PHRASE (inside right)
"If there was something for Mr. Bump
to bump into, he'd bump into
it all right."
Mr. Men is a series of 49 children's books by Roger Hargreaves. The first six
were published in the UK in 1971. Mr. Tickle was the first Mr. Men character
created by Hargreaves, inspired by his son who wanted to know what a tickle
looked like. In 1981, Hargreaves began a series of 42 Little Miss books with
female characters. Each book in the original Mr. Men and Little Miss series
introduced a different title character and a single dominant personality to
convey a simple moral lesson. After Hargreaves's death in 1988, his son Adam
began writing and illustrating new stories, including four characters that his
father had developed before his death.
