    Roger Hargreaves Biography
    Roger Hargreaves (9th May 1935–11th September 1988) was an English author and illustrator of children's books and is best remembered for the Mr. Men and Little Miss series. His books have been part of popular culture since 1971 and have sold over 85 million copies worldwide in 20 languages. The simple and humorous stories, with brightly coloured and boldly drawn illustrations, are fantastic for children.
     
    After Roger Hargreaves passed away, his son Adam took over the series, and is continuing to introduce new characters and exciting new adventures. Together they have published over 100 titles.
     
    Roger Hargreaves Facts
    Roger was a successful copywriter before beginning to create and illustrate children’s books which enabled him to work from home and spend more time with his four children.
     
    The first of the Mr. Men characters was created when Adam, at age six, asked his father what a tickle looked like. He then wrote the first Mr Men titles: Mr Tickle, Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. Mr Silly was his favourite Mr Men story.
     
    The book Little Miss Twins was written for Hargreaves' twin daughters, Sophie and Amelia.
