Who is Mulle Meck?

Mulle Meck lives at the end of the road with his dog Buffa. He enjoys collecting all sorts of scrapyard parts, thingumabobs and whatchamacallits. These come in handy when he builds his car, his boat and his airplane. Since the first book in 1993 Mulle Meck has solved problems and in a fun and easy way showed children how vehicles and machines work.

Mulle Meck also teaches that there is no waste, only old things that you can use in new ways.

Mulle Meck faces life with his very own sayings: "If there is a problem, there must also be a solution” and ”Problems are just solutions in work clothes”.

He has a matter-of fact personality. He likes to help his many friends and to explore the world.
