  • It starts out about his life but then becomes mostly about his works - so some of the few details about his life come out random. When did he get married, eh? Or were the children from somewhere else? Or am I just illiterate? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:36, 13 February 2011
  • It was a long time ago but I'm fairly sure I thought no one would care about his life once the books started. Probably. --Sog1970 21:44, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
  • But they do care about his kids? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:00, 13 February 2011

I think he and David Furnish adopted them from a Malawian orphanage. i'm sure I read that somewhere.--Sog1970 23:05, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment. I don't understand the Nazi stuff on this one Soggy as it doesn't seem to relate to the rest of the article except the Mr Fuhrer joke. Seems an awkward mix but the idea is very good. LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 23:57, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
  • I think I just liked the idea of Britain's third best-selling author of all time and leading kids writer being evil. Have you read Mr Bump? --Sog1970 16:01, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment. Shouldn't this just be called "Roger Hargreaves," instead of "The life and work of Roger Hargreaves?" —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 16:44, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
  • Well, it can be if you like. --Sog1970 20:58, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
    • I think it would make a lot more sense and be a lot more straightforward, to say nothing of the fact that articles on individual people are almost invariably named after that individual person. I'd recommend a title change. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 23:38, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
  • Abstain. A very reluctant abstain on this article but the Nazi stuff bothered me enough not to vote for. Sorry Soggy. LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 10:30, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment. I'm generally in favour of this becoming featured, but I think the pictures need more work - the title font on the books seems quite messy to me. Coronium 21:34, February 23, 2011 (UTC)
