Mr. Nobody joins Mr. Men series

1st February 2010

A new character will be added to the ranks of the Mr. Men books for the first time in six years.

Children's publisher Egmont revealed that the forthcoming Mr. Nobody is an original Roger Hargreaves character and was discovered after it had lain in the archives for more than 20 years.

Adam Hargreaves, the author's son, claimed that his father would be 'delighted' to see Mr. Nobody published for modern readers.

'[Mr. Nobody is] invisible so it's no surprise that he's been elusive and I am thrilled he has been found,' he joked.

The book also involves children's favourite Mr. Happy, who finds the title character and helps him to find out who he is and where he is from.

David Riley, managing director of Egmont Publishing Group, commented: 'We are so excited to have discovered Mr. Nobody. He is a wonderful addition to the much-loved classic Mr. Men range.'

More than 100 million copies of Mr. Men titles have been sold across the globe since hitting the shelves 39 years ago, with 2004's Mr. Good being the most recent character introduced to readers.

The addition to the series follows the announcement of a similar revival of another children's classic, as family entertainment group Chorion recently confirmed that it will create a new animated series based on the Beatrix Potter's books.
