Roger 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. The books' simple and silly stories, with bright-coloured, boldly drawn illustrations, have been part of popular culture for over 25 years, with sales over 85 million worldwide in 20 languages.

The first of the Mr. Men characters is reported to have been created when Adam (his son) asked his father what a tickle looked like: Hargreaves drew a figure with a round orange body and long, rubbery arms, which became Mr. Tickle. daqui

Engraçado que sempre ouvi falar do Mr.Tickle nos filmes e nunca me dei ao trabalho de perceber de onde raio ele vinha! :D
