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 wrote the first Mr. Men book in 1971 when his 8 year old son, Adam Hargreaves, asked 'What does a tickle look like?' In response, Roger drew a figure with a round orange body and long, rubbery arms and Mr. Tickle was born.

By 1976, Roger Hargreaves had quit his day job as creative director of a London advertising firm. In 1981, the Little Miss series of books began with Little Miss Bossy.

Mr Happy is my second favourite 'Mr Men' book, rivalled only by Mr Tickle.
Mr Happy lives in Happyland, but one day he meets Mr Miserable, who looks exactly like Mr Happy, but the corners of his mouth go down in the opposite direction.
A classic subtle message about putting on a happy face, and the power of laughter.
This very cute story would suit many young children of a wide age range.
