Synopsis

Mr. Tickle and the Dragon by Roger Hargreaves

Mr Tickle meets a fire-breathing Dragon who destroys everything in his path. Can he help him change his ways? The Mr Men and Little Miss Magic series takes kids on a series of sparkling adventures where they meet some extraordinary characters including a dragon, an ogre, a mermaid, a princess, a fairy, pirates and many others. These colourful adventures will delight children of two years and upwards. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience. Have you collected all the Little Men and Little Miss Magic? Mr Jelly and the Pirates Little Miss Sunshine and the Wicked Witch Mr Tickle and the Dragon Little Miss Naughty and the Good Fairy Mr Strong and the Ogre Little Miss Trouble and the Mermaid Little Miss Lucky and the Naughty Pixies Mr Noisy and the Giant Little Miss Splendid and the Princess Mr Happy and the Wizard Little Miss Stubborn and the Unicorn Mr Nosey and the Beanstalk Mr Bump and the Knight Little Miss Shy and the Fairy Godmother Mr Greedy and the Gingerbread Man The Three Little Misses and the Big Bad Wolf Mr Funny and the Magic Lamp Little Miss Chatterbox and the Frog Prince It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves' son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh, which is probably why his own favourite character is Mr Silly.

About the Author

Born in 1935 in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, Charles Roger Hargreaves is Britain’s third best-selling author of all time having sold more than 100 million books, including all the familiar Mr. Men and Little Miss characters. Roger Hargreaves followed a career in advertising before becoming an author and illustrator.

He initially had difficulty finding a publisher, but once he did, the books became an instant success, selling over one million copies within three years and spawning a BBC animated television series, narrated and voiced by Arthur Lowe.

Although Roger Hargreaves wrote many other children's stories, including the Timbuctoo series of twenty-five books, John Mouse, and the Roundy and Squary books, he is best known for his Mr. Men and Little Miss books. With his wife, Christine, Roger had four children: Adam, Giles, and twins Sophie and Amelia who were the inspiration for Little Miss Twins.

Roger Hargreaves died suddenly of a stroke 11 September 1988. Adam has continued to write and draw the Mr. Men and Little Miss characters in new stories. In April 2004, Christine sold the rights to the Mr. Men characters to the entertainment group Chorion.
