About this deal

This book is surely one of the greatest works of fiction and as the character development is perhaps only equalled by Mr Tickle in the book Mr Tickle. I highly doubt the art gallery would have let him flip all the paintings upside down though, they are pretty particular about those types of things (i. The Mr Men and Little Miss characters remain a cultural phenomenon, whose impact is felt far beyond the nursery bookshelf. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Birthday · Little Miss Jealous · Little Miss Christmas · Little Miss Birthday · Little Miss Stella · Mr.

Although the idea did not win the competition, Roger Hargreaves liked the idea so much he wrote to Marc Penfold saying he would use the idea.Nobody is quite sure how Mr Topsy Turvy got there, or where he came from, but he did arrive, because somebody saw him getting off the train. The Mr Men and Little Miss have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics.

I’m grateful to Roger Hargreaves for brightening up my childhood with both his Mr Men and the Timbuctoo series of books. It's so infectious too, as those that come in contact with him soon find themselves speaking Topsy Turvy. The book itself describes the very intriguing and complex mind of Mr Topsy-Turvy and shows him to be a character who single handedly says no against society's rigours.Mind you there are probably some things that Mr Topsy Turvey does that we shouldn't imitate, such as getting off the wrong side of a train (if that is possible since these days we have automatic doors, and even those doors that aren't automatic won't open no matter how hard with try – unless of course we happen to have a key). 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. The trouble was, he did it in a topsy turby way, and got out the wrong side and fell on to the railway line. Whilst not considered on of the most popular Mr characters, I think it's quite a nice book - nothing too crazy goes on it's just a nice story about him visiting my town.

He took a taxi from the hotel, but so confused the taxi driver trying to tell him where he wanted to go, the poor man drove straight into a traffic light. Also in the book Mr TT has a backwards clock which clearly demonstrates his defiance of todays time constraint obsessed culture which single handedly chokes todays McDonalds loving media crazed planet.The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters which have been delighting children and adults for generations. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Book is in very good, near new condition with very mild general age-related wear and tear, otherwise no other pre-loved markings. What if we don't like sport, or what if our heroes are a little different – say a scientist, or an science-fiction author.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters.
