Although the idea did not win the competition, Roger Hargreaves liked the idea so much he wrote to Marc Penfold saying he would use the idea. From Mr Tickle's extraordinarily long arms to Little Miss Princess's sparkly crown, the Mr Men and Little Misses have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics. Eventually the hotel manager managed to work out what Mr Topsy Turvy was talking about, and he was taken up in the lift to a bedroom.

Think I’m right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of “Mr Snow”.

However, upon reaching the end of the book I suddenly discovered that this is not actually the case. Plus it provides the opportunity of a lovely word game which my children relished, trying to outdo each other with absurdities.You ought to see his house, the front door is upside down to start with, and the curtains hang upside down! Book is in very good, near new condition with very mild general age-related wear and tear, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.

In fact this idea can even be seen on the front cover, Mr TT is holding a walking cane the "wrong" way round, but is this really the wrong way round or has todays commercial 1984 world told us it is? When I was younger we were considered to be a little strange – topsy-turvey if you will – however I have grown up I have seen how these dorky little hobbies that I had when I was a kid have started to move into the mainstream. He wondered if he could make a living writing and illustrating children’s books so he wrote the first Mr Men titles: Mr Tickle, Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump.
