The female version of the Mr Men books, also by Roger Hargreaves -- children's books with stories of simply drawn figures defined by one characteristic (Little Miss Sunshine is always happy; Little Miss Bossy tells everyone else what to do). They live in the same world as the Mr Men and run into them in their stories. Each character has her own book, named after her, and several have additional books (i.e., Little Miss Naughty Upsets Mr Worry).

Some Little Miss characters are also featured on television in The Mr. Men Show, but a few of these are created for the show (Little Miss Calamity, Little Miss Daredevil, Little Miss Scary, and Little Miss Whoops), as well as ones featured in the books (Little Miss Chatterbox, Little Miss Helpful, Little Miss Naughty, Little Miss Sunshine) and Little Miss Scatterbrain was made into Mr. Scatterbrain, probably to combat the stereotype that women are more likely to be scatterbrained.
