Enjoy the story that first introduced the Mr Men to the world in this special 50th anniversary edition!

Mr Tickle is small and round and has arms that stretch and stretch. Extraordinarily long arms, perfect for tickling!

In 1971 Mr Tickle was published, bringing fun, tickles and laughter to children everywhere. Now, 50 years later you can enjoy this special upsized edition of the classic story with a bonus new story about how it all began. The perfect gift for fans of the Mr Men.

The Mr Men and Little Miss have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics. Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up. Have you met them all?



For those of us who grew up with the Mr Men and Little Miss series’ of books and now want to share them with our own children, here comes a special, keepsake edition of the story that started it all.

The gold and shiny hardcover that’s about four times the diameter of the standard books, and images and text that are enlarged to fit these new dimensions aren’t the only things this book has going for it. Here, you can finally learn about the origin of the series that has become so very popular over the last five decades, with the story of where it all began.

Once upon a time…
there was a little boy who asked his father a question. An impossible question.
“Daddy, what does a tickle look like?”
The little boy’s father scratched his head. “That’s a very good question,” he said. 

In this way, Adam Hargreaves started his father Roger down the train of thought that would continue to expand, from generation to generation.
