Two iconic British franchises have come together to create the most wonderful mash up for Mr Men and Dr Who fans.
In April this year we saw four books in a new range which sees Doctor Who’s regenerations imagined in the style of Roger Hargreaves, creator of the Mr. Men.
These storybook mash-ups, written and illustrated by Adam Hargreaves, combine the iconic storytelling of Doctor Who with the whimsical humour and design made famous by his father, Roger Hargreaves.
“The world of Doctor Who can be very complicated,” says Hargreaves, “so I was very conscious of how to make them work for pre-school children, while capturing the daft, silly sense of humour that Mr Men is all about. To inject some of the Mr Men storytelling style of my dad.”
The first four books released were: Dr. First, Dr. Fourth, Dr. Eleventh and Dr. Twelfth.
In August this year, four more Dr books were release- Dr. Second, Dr. Seventh, Dr. Eighth and Dr. Ninth.
If you are a Whovian you will enjoy introducing the wonderful world of Dr Who to your little one in a format that they can identify with if they are already familiar with the Mr Men series.
Daleks, Cybermen, Cybermats, Weeping Angels and Silurians are all recreated in the book that matches to the particular Dr Who episode.
This is a chance for parents to share their love of Dr Who with the next generation of Dr Who fans in a family friendly format.
The books can be purchased from the Book Depository just in time for Christmas!
