Artist > Roger & Adam Hargreaves
Charles Roger Hargreaves (9 May 1935 – 11 September 1988) was an English author and illustrator of children's books, notably the Mr. Men and Little Miss series, intended for very young readers. He is Britain's third best-selling author, having sold more than 100 million books.
Hargreaves’s first Mr. Men book came when his son asked him what a tickle is, leading to the creation of Mr. Tickle in 1971. Since, Hargreaves has produced 46 Mr. Men books and 33 Little Miss books, including Mr. Bump, Mr. Uppity, and Little Miss Sunshine.
Roger passed away in 1988, but his son Adam continued writing and drawing Mr. Men and Little Miss characters with new stories.
We at The Animation Art Gallery have a strong bond with Mr. Men and it's authors. Adam Hargreaves joined us in the gallery to celebrate the 35th birthday of Mr. Men. See pictures and more about the event here.
