Mr Men and Little Miss are the beloved characters in a series of books created by the British author Roger Hargreaves and also a few created by Adam Hargreaves. They were published in the 1970s! Much to everyone’s delight, they were an incredible success, even worldwide and loved by all kids (me included! I actually have both collections). If your kids aren’t aware of these incredible children’s books, it’s about time to introduce them to the Little Miss and Mr Men characters!
14 Mr Men characters
Arguably the most famous Mr Men character. He’s the 6th book in the series and as his name suggests, he’s prone to accidents, falls and bumps and is always covered in bandages! Poor Mr Bump.
Marking the 24th book, Mr Clumsy is a character. He’s green and has a yellow nose! He’s always breaking or dropping things, even knocking stuff over! He falls into duck ponds, out of chairs and out of bed! When will he learn?
He lives in Cleverland, where everyone is clever, but him… A pig and an elephant take advantage of him and he ends up getting really sad and wishing he was clever. All while next to a wishing well…
There is no room for imperfection with Mr Fussy. Not a hair out of place or shoelaces untied. He lives in a very neat house but he’s a fussy eater! His cousin Mr Clumsy comes to visit but he causes chaos and Mr Fussy’s house is destroyed!
He comes in at the 3rd book in the series. The happiest Mr Men around! He’s always trying to make everyone happy, but some people just don’t want to be happy. Will he help them become happy?
He’s scared of everything. If a twig snaps, he jumps out of his shoes! And he always hides under the covers, because he’s afraid of just about anything. Will he ever become brave?
He’s odd, he’s weird, he lives in Nonsenseland! Where tree leaves are red and the grass is blue. He enters a competition to find the silliest thing, but he can’t seem to figure out what’s so silly.
He’s so tiny, are you even able to spot him? He’s eager to find a job suitable for him, he can’t put mustard in jars, nor can he put matches in a matchbox. What job is suitable for a small person?
He’s big, he’s strong, he’s Mr Strong! He’s the strongest person around because he eats so many eggs that he has the strength to pick up a farmyard barn! What’s on his agenda today? Probably eating more eggs…
A magical snowman! He started off as an ordinary snowman until the jolly man himself, Father Christmas, came upon him and brought him to life!
Achooo! Imagine sneezing all the time and your nose being as red as a tomato! Well, Mr Sneeze deals with that every day in Coldland. But what if he moved to a hot country? Will he sneeze then?
He’s the 1st book in the Mr Men characters from the original series created by Roger Hargreaves. He’s a tickle monster! With extraordinary long arms, he can tickle anyone from any distance, and they won’t even know it’s him! He could be lurking around any corner…waiting to tickle you!
Is very rude and very rich. A dubious character that is hard to like, because of his rude manners. But he gets his comeuppance when he messes with the wrong guy. Will he change his ways?
Imagine always worrying about something, anytime, any day, anywhere! Mr Worry worries about it all. If it’s too hot, he’ll worry about getting burned, if it rains, he’ll worry about his roof leaking! Until he meets someone who can make him stop worrying. Will it work?
This is just a select few because there are 55 Mr Men characters! Collect all the books and you’ll have a stupendous book collection!
