Synopsis

Mr. Men Meet Father Christmas by Roger Hargreaves

When Little Miss Tiny secretly wishes she could visit Father Christmas she doesn't expect her wish to come true. But magical things really do happen at Christmas and crazy things too when you're with the Mr. Men and the Little Miss! Mr Men and Little Miss Celebrations introduce children to all the exciting occasions that people celebrate including birthdays, Christmas, Halloween, Easter, sporting events...and even a trip to the moon. 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 Mr Men and Little Miss Celebrations? Mr Birthday; Little Miss Birthday; Mr Christmas; Little Miss Christmas; Mr Men A Christmas Carol; Mr Men The Night Before Christmas; Mr Men 12 Days of Christmas; Mr Men A Christmas Pantomine; Mr Men A White Christmas; Mr Men Meet Father Christmas; Mr Men The Christmas Tree; Mr Men The Christmas Party Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Party; Mr Men Sports Day; Mr Tickle and the Scary Halloween; Mr Men The Big Match; Mr Men and the Tooth Fairy; Mr Men Trip to the Moon; Mr Impossible and the Easter Egg Hunt; Mr Mischief and the Leprechaun; and; Mr Men: The Rugby Match. 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.
