Mr. Grumpy Paperback
Part of the Mr. Men Classic Library series
Mr Grumpy has a shocking bad temper. In fact, he's quite the most bad-tempered person you can imagine.
Grumpy by name, and even more grumpy by nature!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 two up.
Have you met them all?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.
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.

Review by PhilSyphe
Think I’m right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of “Mr Snow”. Looking at all the covers apart from the latter jogged my memory.Sadly I remember little about the stories now, despite reading them numerous times during my boyhood, plus watching the Mr Men cartoons more than once.Reckon the last time I would’ve read these was 1983, though may have returned to them as late as 1985. Although I’ve forgotten almost everything about this title and all the others I feel that owing to the amount of times I read each publication that they all deserve to be rated five stars.I’m grateful to Roger Hargreaves for brightening up my childhood with both his Mr Men and the Timbuctoo series of books.
