Remember these books by Roger Hargreaves–with Mr. Funny and Mr. Happy and Little Miss Chatterbox; they made the world simple and cute. Well, now not only do they have their own TV show, but they’re available as eBooks for the iPhone and iPod touch through ScrollMotion’s Iceberg Kids platform, joining Curious George, Sesame Street, and other titles. While the Mr. Men books have been in the pipeline for a while, they are available for download via the App store as of today, according to John Roderick, spokesperson for ScrollMotion.
Check out the video above for a demo of how the books look in the Iceberg Kids platform. These are the available titles: Mr. Happy, Mr. Tickle, Mr. Bump, Mr. Messy, Mr. Mischief, Mr. Perfect, Mr. Funny, Mr. Grumpy, Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Chatterbox, Little Miss Giggles, Little Miss Stubborn, Little Miss Fun, Little Miss Naughty, Little Miss Bossy, and Little Miss Trouble. They cost $3.99, with Mr. Tickle and Little Miss Chatterbox on sale for $1.99.
These eBooks came about through an agreement between ScrollMotion and Chorion, the licensing company that handles the Mr. Men brand, which is also behind the Mr. Men TV show and other Mr. Men products. The apps are available for purchase here.
