Today's Google Doodle honours 76th Birthday of 'Mr. Men' Author Roger Hargreaves

If you've checked out Google today, you'll notice the cuteness has no bounds with different Google doodles riffing off Mr. Bump, Mr. Men, Mr. Rush, Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Shy and so many others. If you're in the right age range, you'll recognise the images from your childhood as those conjured up by British author and illustrator Roger Hargreaves, whose birthday Google celebrates today with these awesome renditions.

Hargreaves, who died in 1988, would have been 76 today. He is best known for the Mr. Men and Little Miss books, which started with Mr. Tickle in 1971. The books have thus far sold more than 100 million copies in 28 countries.
