Mr. Greedy and the Gingerbread Man Paperback
Part of the Mr. Men & Little Miss Magic series
It's perhaps not so surprising to hear that one day Mr. Greedy was feeling hungry. And also not particularly surprising to hear that he made himself a giant gingerbread man.
Bur before he has the chance to enjoy his snack the gingerbread man is on the run. The Mr Men and Little Miss Magic series takes kids on a series of sparkling adventures where they meet some extraordinary characters including a dragon, an ogre, a mermaid, a princess, a fairy, pirates and many others. 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.
