Mr Men The Rugby Match

Now I’ve got to be honest, you could write what I know about Rugby on a postage stamp, but even I know that the Rugby World Cup is now under way.  To celebrate this sporting event, Egmont have recently released Mr Men The Rugby Match.

Mr Men The Rugby Match

Written and illustrated by Adrian Hargreaves, along the lines of the original concept by his father Roger Hargreaves, Mr Men The Rugby Match has introduced Monkey to the whole concept of the game of Rugby.

Mr Strong is the Captain of his Rugby Team and they are about to meet their toughest opponents – the All Reds.  Now as we all know Mr Strong, doesn’t always know the extent of his strength.  Monkey always calls Daddy P Mr Strong as he has the same problem! Rugby boots and balls don’t survive Mr Strong’s care and attention but luckily there are plenty of spares.

He’s picked his team, but can they compare to the prowess of the All Reds?

His team included a number of old favourites here, Mr Tickle, Mr Jelly and Mr Greedy as well as Mr Rush.  Can they beat the All Reds, it’s all looking a bit doubtful, but they do have Mr Impossible on their side.

This is another lovely Mr Men book, and although neither Monkey or I know much about the game, we’ve both had a giggle as we’ve been reading.  For £2.99 you can’t go wrong with the Mr Men books in my opinion and this one is currently on offer over on Amazon (my affiliate link is below).

  1. You can’t go wrong with the Mr Men can you? I know very little about Rugby but hubby is a fan and trying to teach the children. This is right up his street!
