A little science for ya, about the world’s most typical person. National Geographic did some really extensive research of seven billion people to find out what a average human is like.

Little Miss Princess meets and falls in love with a prince, Mr. Bump, and soon she’s living a castle with a butler who puts toothpaste on her toothbrush for her. Little Miss Princess, which goes on sale in the UK on Monday, will be the first Mr. Men book to be published since 2004; an accompanying sticker and coloring book, Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Wedding, will be for sale in April.
