My Book About Me By Mr Silly

What would you write a book about?

Mr Silly’s story began with himself, but then he decided to include his friends. He knew that if his friends were in the book then they would want to read it, just like you.

Enjoy this very silly book about Mr Silly’s book!

Take a sneak peek inside:

What the Toppsta reviewers think:

‘Perhaps the highest recommendation for the book – on finishing it Sophie said “I could write a book about me, with my friends Evelyn, Emma and Molly in it…….” and wandered off to find some paper and pencils. Mission accomplished.’ – Kathryn read to Sophie, age 4

‘Another great addition to the Mr Men series, Mr Silly decides to write a book about himself using a carrot for a pen! As usual it contains all the silly things Mr Silly gets up to like buying a book one page at a time. Mr Silly realises he needs to include some of his friends so this book includes some of the favourite Mr Men. Great story, nice length and very jolly.’ – Ragdollkhan read to Ragdollkhanbaby, age 6

‘Great simple storytelling at its best.’ – Rebecca read to Gabriella, age 3 and Alex, age 9

‘As a child I read quite a lot of the Mr. Men and Little Miss book series and now am delighted to share these stories with my children. What’s brilliant is there are always fun, new Mr. Men books being made and this is a great example. In this story Mr. Silly decides to write a book all about himself. Quite quickly in the story Mr. Silly realises that he needs to include his friends in his new book as well. He writes about how his friends read their books (our favourite was Mr. Wrong reading literally upside down). We also laughed at Mr. Wrong writing his book with a carrot. The final joke of the book is definitely our favourite but we won’t give that away. We highly recommend this fun short story.’ – Amy read to Noah, age 7 and Flynn, age 4

    About the Author

    Adam Hargreaves

    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 2 years and up.

    It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves’ son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. When the first Mr Men books were published they became an instant hit. Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh, which is probably why his own favourite character was Mr Silly.

    Sadly Roger passed away in 1988, but his son Adam took over the series, introducing new characters and exciting new adventures. Roger once said, ‘I feel very happy to think that when the Mr Men and Little Misses are 100 years old, their readers will always be five.’
