Mr Men to Release a Series of Doctor Who Themed Books

Mr Men books are a staple of children the world over, and now there’s to be a series of books with a twist as Mr Men publishers and the BBC combine to bring readers Doctor Who themed Mr Men books.

It’s the first official Hargreaves mash up, a series of 12 books entitled Dr. First, Dr. Second and so on. Inspired by various online mash ups created by fans, the new series of books will incorporate the look and style of each Doctor, reimagining them as Mr Men characters.

The first four books will be released in the Spring of 2017 and will combine the iconic storytelling of Doctor Who with the whimsical design of the Mr Men characters. A range of merchandise is also planned to accompany the books, and they are likely to drive fans of both the Doctor, and the Mr Men absolutely wild.

This is a massive move, bringing together two of the most iconic character sets in British psyche, and we expect an explosion in both popularity of the books, and merchandise too. I will certainly be adding these to my children’s book collection, despite not having children of that age any more, and I suspect many other fans will feel the same.

None of the books are yet available for pre-order, but the first four in the series are due for release in the Spring of next year.
