Mr Men: The Rugby Match Paperback
Part of the Mr. Men & Little Miss Celebrations series
Mr Strong's rugby team are about to play the biggest match of their lives and Mr Strong has some good players up his sleeve: Mr Greedy, the one-man scrum, Mr Tickle with his outstanding tackles and the fastest player of them all, Mr Rush.
But with Mr Forgetful forgetting which sport they are playing, Mr Jelly running away in fear when he sees the other team and Mr Bounce getting bounced out of the ground, it's not looking very hopeful. Mr Men and Little Miss Celebrations introduce children to all the exciting occasions that people celebrate including birthdays, Christmas, Halloween, Easter, sporting events ... and even a trip to the moon. These colourful adventures will delight children of two years and upwards.
Bold illustrations and funny stories make Mr Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience.

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.
The books were an instant hit and 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 is Mr Silly.
