If you were born in the '70s or '80s, chances are recognize Little Miss Chatterbox, Mr. Messy, Mr. Tickle and the other characters from the popular Mr. Men and Little Miss book series. Since then, the series has expaned to include 85 books and a slew of products, from T-shirts to plush toys. But it's the latest reinvention, a parody series not associated with the original series, is something is a little bit different — and definitely not for kids.
Four new books are being released in the series, all parodying people we all know in real life. There's Mr. Humblebrag (who is so #blessed), Little Miss Basic (can you guess her seasonal drink of choice?), Little Miss Overshare (TMI personified) and Mr. Selfie (with his ever-present selfie stick).
All four books were released yesterday and we're giving you a first look here.
