Mr Nobody

After years of hiding, a new member has finally joined the family of Mr Men and Little Misses: Mr Nobody. You may well wonder what he looks like. After all, picturing a 'nobody' isn't half as easy as showing a 'messy' or a 'scary' or a 'wise'. The French publishers of the series (Hachette) launched a cool competition, asking children to come up with their own answer to this very question. You can see the top 18 here. The young artists found some really clever solutions: one of them only showed Mr Nobody from behind, while a few went for an invisible character (as did the actual book). My favourite (pictured above, by Yoni Simhon) has "Monsieur Personne" in the shape of a question mark. Brilliant or what?
