Original Mr Men stories arrive on audiobook

The original Mr Men are back, this time on audiobook, with six episodes from the 1970’s series being released by AudioGo.

Taken directly from the BBC archives, the stories feature Mr Funny, Mr Dizzy, Mr Bump, Mr Fussy, Mr Topsy-Turvy and Mr Small.

The new release, which runs to 45 minutes, includes the colourful look and artwork of the original vinyl LP. It is available on CD and digital download, priced at £5.99.

A spokesman for AudioGo said: "For over 40 years, the Mr Men have been entertaining young children with their colourful characters and funny adventures, and we are thrilled to be now releasing some of their earliest escapades on audiobook for the first time.

"Arthur Lowe was one of Britain’s greatest comic actors and families will listen in delight as he brings Mr Funny, Mr Topsy-Turvy and other Misterland favourites to life."

The first six Mr Men books were released in 1971, with an animated BBC TV series featuring the voice of Dad’s Army star Lowe following three years later.
