Little Miss Inventor has pencils and a spanner in her hair and is described as intelligent, ingenious and inventive. She has been created to act as a positive role model for young girls. The new books blurb reads: 

“Her brain is full of ideas, which she turns into extraordinary inventions in a shed at the bottom of her garden”.

Some of her inventions will include a backpack-snack-attack fridge for Mr Greedy and a chatter-natter hat for Miss Chatterbox. 

Little Miss Inventor, created by Adam Hargreaves, will be released on 8 March 2018 and will be the 36th “Little Miss” character to join the collection. The release date ties in well with International Women’s Day and British Science Week. 

Adam Hargreaves, son of Mr Men and Little Miss author, Roger Hargreaves, said:

“I always enjoy creating a brand-new character for the series and it was fun coming up with lots of crazy inventions for Little Miss Inventor’s home and silly ones for all her friends. It’s also been nice to write a story that promotes a positive role model and to challenge a stereotype, if only in a small way.”
