Mr Men - The Rugby Match by Roger Hargreaves (Egmont Publishing)

The Mr Men are back! And Forward! And winging it too! Here's a timely re-release of "Mr Men: The Rugby Match" by Roger Hargreaves for little ones tuning into the Rugby World Cup!
It goes without saying that if you're going to form a rugby team in the world of the Mr Men, the first person you're going to call on is Mr Strong. in "Mr Men: The Rugby Match" Mr Strong's team mixes all the Mr Men's abilities, with Mr Tickle's long arms perfect for passing, Mr Bounce fantastic for boinging all around the field and Mr Rush speedily running rings round the opposition.

It's not the perfect team though. Mr Forgetful completely forgets which sport they're playing and Mr Jelly is too scared of the opposition to even take a pass.

Will Mr Strong be able to achieve the impossible and win the match?

A great little story for Mr Men fans who also love the current Rugby World Cup celebrations taking place. Dive onto the touch line and do not pass this one up!

Charlotte's favourite bit: Mr Forgetful (who really needs to check his kitbag!)

Daddy's favourite bit: A great addition to the Mr Men range for tiddly and avid rugby fanatics
