Title: Mr Men and Little Miss in Australia
Author: Roger Hargreaves
Published: 2nd November 2021
Synopsis: Join the Mr Men and Little Miss on an Australian adventure!
The Mr Men and Little Miss are heading down under – or ‘up over’ as Mr Topsy Turvy would say!
Little Miss Somersault is excited about a game of cricket, Mr Tall is keen to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Mr Silly thinks he might enter the Melbourne Cup. What other amazing things will they discover on their Australian journey?
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?
As one of the most beloved children’s series turns fifty this year, there have been several anniversary editions and new books. One of these books takes the Mr Men and Little Miss characters to Australia, where they travel around the coast, from east to west, north to south and everywhere in between to see all the sights and sounds of Australia – from the Harbour Bridge to the Melbourne Cup, and the Great Barrier Reef as well as the wide deserts in the centre of the vast nation.
This new story takes some of the most well-known and beloved characters and puts them in a colourful adventure around Australia – touring a country and being tourists. The colours of Australia and its vibrant landscape come to life as each character gets to do something they want – a different thing in each significant location in Australia that the author has chosen to include, highlighting some of Australia’s most famous landmarks, and some that might not get the attention that others do, and bringing them to the attention of readers of all ages.
This book is perfect for those who know the Mr Men and Little Miss characters well and perfect for those new to them too – and could be a wonderful introduction alongside the other books about the characters and everything else in between. It is one of those books that is fun, filled with fantastic humour, and timeless, as it doesn’t place the story or characters in any specific time and place – something that is a lovely aspect of books. When they do this, they can cross so many generations, as the book is not tied to a specific time and place – it has many aspects that can be shared and enjoyed by readers of all ages, and those who loved the Mr Men and Little Miss books can now pass that love onto their children and future generations.
Another fantastic addition to the Mr Men series.
