Mr. Men (initially released as the Mister series) is a British book series created by Roger Hargreaves in 1971. The first book from the Mr. Men franchise was Mr. Tickle and came out along with Mr. Greedy, Mr. Happy, Mr. Nosey, Mr. Sneeze, Mr. Bump, and Mr. Snow. After these seven men, thirty-two men followed.

Roger passed away in 1988 after and rights to his works were handed over to family. Mr. Men creation was handed over to Viviane Cohen (writer), Evelyne Lallemand (translator) and Colette David (illustrator) in the 1990's. The trio added Mr. Brave, Mr. Grumble, Mr. Perfect and Mr. Cheerful to the library, and Mr. Brawler and Mr. No to the French-exclusive library.

A decade later, Adam Hargreaves picked up to start illustrating the books and later to write some of his own, which he continues to this day. His first additions in 2003 were Mr. Cool, Mr. Rude, Mr. Good.

Since then, Adam has added Mr. Nobody, Mr. Adventure, and Mr. Marvelous to the cast of characters.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the public got to vote for Mr. Calm as the newest Mr. Men!

On September 12th 2024, Mr. Fib will be joining the roster.
