Book Description

4 May 2003 Miffy - Classic Hardbacks

Miffy learns all about art in this classic picture book by Dick Bruna.

Father Bunny thinks that Miffy is too small to go to an art gallery, but she persuades him to let her come along with him and Mother Bunny. Miffy sees paintings, a mobile and even a stone statue, which is all very exciting. Miffy soon decides that she wants to be an artist when she grows up.

Miffy is among the most iconic of all classic children’s characters. Dick Bruna’s most popular creation was first conceived in 1955 and since then his books have gone on to sell more than 80 million copies in 40 different languages. In this hardback storybook a whole new generation of readers are able to fall in love with the little white bunny.

Product Description

About the Author

Dick Bruna Dick Bruna was born in 1927 in Utrecht, Holland. His parents named him Hendrik after his grandfather, but because he was a chubby child he was playfully called Dik, which means 'fatty' in Dutch. Dick comes from a family of publishers who under the name of 'A.W. Bruna and Son' started to print books in 1868. After he left school, Dick went to London for a year to learn the publishing trade and then to Paris where he discovered modern artists like Picasso and Matisse who would inspire his own illustration style. While on holiday in 1955, Dick began to tell his son stories about a little white rabbit who lived in the garden of their holiday home and this little rabbit soon became known to the world as Miffy. Dick Bruna is now one of the most famous creators of picture books in the world. He has written and illustrated almost 100 books, which have sold over 80 million copies in 40 languages. His characters include the little dog Snuffy, the lady pig Poppy, the bears Boris and Barbara and favourite of all, Miffy the little white bunny.

A fantastic way to introduce young children to the modern art world. Simplifies forms of modern art to toddlers while retaining a child's sense of wonderment. A lovely read for children and parents alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little book 19 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
I bought this on the strength of an Arts programme on Matisse in which they showed one of the illustrations from the book. I think it's a great little book - not too worried about the story (maybe if I had young children it would matter more) but just lovin' the simple illustrations.
