It’s been 45 years since Mr Tickle arrived in bookshops back in 1971. To mark the anniversary of the Mr Men and Little Miss books celebrations are underway with the release of four new ebooks by creator Roger Hargreaves’ son, Adam Hargreaves.
Little Miss Fabulous, Little Miss Sparkle and Mr Marvellous will follow the release of Mr Adventure, who is “looking for the greatest thrills money can buy”.
Little Miss Sparkle is our favourite: “her shiny presence … guaranteed to add a little pizzazz to any situation”. Little Miss Fabulous has “fabulous hair” and Mr Marvellous is “simply a marvel”. So much to adore here. The ebooks will be followed up with print editions.
Adam Hargreaves commented, “I hope my dad would have liked my new books - and that he would think they were in keeping with the rest of the series.”
You can preorder the books in Australia here.
