As the Mr Men series celebrates its 45th birthday this year and the original creator Roger Hargreaves was born on 9th May, I’ve joined together with Egmont UK to celebrate . It’s time for a Mr Men Birthday Party.
The new Mr Men Birthday Party was published yesterday (I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link for you below) and Monkey got to enjoy reading it with a few friends recently. There was even some birthday cake to be enjoyed!
Even Monkey’s favourite Mr Men – Mr Bump made an appearance.
We appear to have a house full of Mr Men fans here, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves as we celebrated the release of Mr Men Birthday Party. It’s amazing how quickly Monkey’s friends assembled when they heard the word ‘cake’! The Little Miss Princess cake is readily available at Tesco – isn’t she sweet.
Mr Men Birthday Party has been a big hit with Monkey and his friends. Poor Mr Birthday isn’t well and he’s supposed to be organising a birthday party for Mr Silly. Whatever can he do? Somehow he gets talked into letting Little Miss Helpful sort the party out for him, this could all go horribly wrong.
Poor Little Miss Helpful has a wonder talent for picking the wrong people for jobs. Would you ask Mr Muddle to bake a birthday cake, or get Mr Forgetful to send out the invitations? I certainly wouldn’t leave Mr Mean in charge of buying a birthday present!
Can the friends save Mr Silly’s birthday party from being a total disaster? You’ll have to buy Mr Men Birthday Party to find out! I’m also running a giveaway below where you can win yourself a copy. Read on.
Now as there’s a double birthday celebration going on for the Mr Men and Roger Hargreaves it seems only fair to share some more fun with you all, in the shape of the personalised book Mr Men the Very Silly Birthday book. The book can be personalised with your child’s name and an avatar of your boy/girl too. They then feature throughout the book, which is larger than the normal Mr Men and Little Miss books.
I have a 20% reader discount to share with you for the Mr Men the Very Silly Birthday – use code pblogger20 when ordering. You can find out when Little Miss Birthday and Mr Birthday ask your child to help them prepare a birthday party.
