A new Mr Man book - or rather a Little Miss book - will be published in time for the Royal Wedding featuring a lovely, kind princess who moves into a lovely shiny palace. It has been suggested that this new addition to the Mr Men and Little Miss characters is based on Prince William's fiancee, Miss Kate Middleton. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the titles, Little Miss Princess And the Very Special Wedding will be published in April.
Adam Hargreaves the author, was inspired to create the character in honour of the royal wedding later this year and is probably hoping for an invitation! Adam is son of Mr Men's original creator, Roger Hargreaves.
The Little Miss Princess is described as "not rude or spoilt, but kind and generous" and is said to be "privileged but caring" and apparently she can "be a bossy boots at times!"
Over the past 40 years, more than 100 million Mr Men and Little Miss books have been published by Egmont Publishing Group. They have been sold worldwide and more than three million Mr Men and Little Miss books are sold every year.
