Mr. Men Little Miss Unveils New Character
The Little Miss Inventor character will debut next year to coincide with International Women’s Day and British Science Week.
EUROPE–Sanrio and Egmont Publishing have come together to add a new character to the Mr. Men Little Miss universe–Little Miss Inventor.
Little Miss Inventor is considered to be intelligent, ingenious and inventive. The new character’s brain is full of ideas, which she turns into extraordinary inventions in her shed. Although she invents plenty of things for herself, she also invents things for her friends, whether it’s a chatter-natter hat for Little Miss Chatterbox or a backpack-snack-attack fridge for Mr. Greedy. However, her greatest challenge yet still has her stumped–what could she invent for Mr. Rude?
Little Miss Inventor will launch as a book in the classic Mr. Men Little Miss range on March 8, 2018, to coincide with International Women’s Day and British Science Week.
“I always enjoy creating a brand new character for the series and it was fun coming up with lots of crazy inventions for Little Miss Inventor’s home and silly ones for all her friends,” says Adam Hargreaves, author and illustrator, Mr. Men and Little Miss. “It’s also been nice to write a story that promotes a positive role model and to challenge a stereotype, if only in a small way.”
Additionally, Little Miss Inventor is the 36th Little Miss character to join the classic Mr. Men Little Miss library.
