Roger Hargreaves’ ambition was to be a cartoonist. In 1971 his son Adam asked him what a tickle would look like. Roger Hargreaves then decided to create his first Mr. Men book called Mr Tickle. He found it hard to find someone who would turn his work into books but once he did, he sold over one million copies in three years.
Ten years later in 1981, he realised the Little Miss books. The first was Little Miss Bossy.
Roger Hargreaves died at the age of 53. But the Mr. Men carry on and now his son Adam writes and draws new stories for the characters.
