The characters from Roger Hargreaves’ iconic childrens’ series Mr. Men and Little Miss have undergone quite a revolution in the last few years. Although their looks haven’t changed much, many more characters have been introduced to the series, including various characters from the cult television show Doctor Who
. Many more have ‘grown-up’, dealing with issues that adults face on a daily basis.
The following books are part of a new series- Mr. Men and Little Miss for Grown-Ups
- which feature all our favourite characters in a slightly more mature setting…
