You can still get them for kids (and rightly so), but there is now a range of Mr. Men For Grown-Ups books too.
The books follow in the footsteps of other classics kids books updated for adults, including Ladybird for Grown-Ups, I-Spy books and the re-imagined Enid Blyton books. So if you liked the idea of those, you will probably appreciate these.
Indeed, like those other book series, this follow a similar path of using classic artwork (in this case by Roger Hargreaves) alongside new and humorous text relating to modern, grown-up life.
So take your pick from Mr Greedy Eats Clean To Get Lean, Little Miss Busy Surviving Motherhood, Little Miss Shy Goes Online Dating and Mr Happy and the Office Party.
If you want to know all about those stories, you can preview the books and the stories on the retailer’s site. If you know someone who might appreciate one or all this Christmas, they are each at the ‘stocking filler’ price of £3.
Also, if you like the idea and love sci-fi, there’s also a series of Mr. Men Doctor Who books too.
