and speaking of cute...

I picked a whole bunch of these Roger Hargreaves books up at a yard sale a few years ago, and we just rediscovered them on a bookshelf yesterday. These four are the cutest, in my opinion. And even the story of how the series came about is cute. According to Wikipedia, "The first of the Mr. Men characters is reported to have been created when Adam (Hargreaves' son) asked his father what a tickle looked like: Hargreaves drew a figure with a round orange body and long, rubbery arms, which became Mr. Tickle." I hope Phillip likes them when we start reading them with him!

I loved those books when I was little! I wonder if they are in the box of our favourite books that Mom saved - must check! I am sure Phillip will enjoy them when the time comes.
