Mr Men and the Tooth Fairy by Roger Hargreaves


Mr Men and the Tooth Fairy by Roger Hargreaves

Little Miss Curious is curious about everything. So it will come as no surprise that when she hears about a child's tooth being taken by the tooth fairy she is very very curious indeed. And so she sets out to find the answer, finding some very wrong answers along the way, thanks to Mr Muddle and Mr Wrong! 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; and 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.
