Mr. Men & Little Miss Drawing Contest Summary

After receiving 3 brand-new Mr. Men box sets in a donation this Fall, we decided they were so special that we would host a contest that would have these sets as prizes. We developed a simple premise, draw you favourite Mr. Men or Little Miss character. Alternatively, children could make up their own character …and we were shocked by how many did just that! Creative little children came up with Mr. Book Bank, Little Miss Nerd, Little Miss Frame, Little Miss Hats, Litte Miss Reader, Mr. Tough, and Mr. Witty.

Some of the other highlights of the contest include Mr. Witty, who was particularly remarkable since the entry included an entire storybook about the character as well as a clay figurine of Mr. Witty! We were also very excited to spread the word all the way to Vancouver, Canada. We received 4 electronic submissions from 9 year old Joaquin Rado.

We congratulate all of our contestants, your drawings were amazing and we love that you embraced this older storybook series, which was first published in the 1970s! Thanks for decorating our storefront with your Mr. Men and Little Miss creations and taking almost every single Mr. Men and Little Miss storybook in our book bank!

Sincerely,

Little Miss Reagan & The Children’s Book Bank
