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.

4.0 out of 5 stars MIffy At The Zoo 5 Feb 2003
Dick Bruna's simply illustrated books, in bold colours have great appeal for early readers. This is one of the best in the Miffy series as it features all kinds of animals that Miffy sees on a trip to the zoo with her father. The rhyming text makes it an easy read. With the Miffy series now being reprinted it seems a shame that a new version of this one has yet to appear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hit! 4 Aug 2013
By Julie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although I have 5 children of my own, I never ventured into the world of Miffy with them. I bought this for my 15 month old grandaughter, along with a cuddly toy and she loves it. My son has to read every page and she sits perfectly still, pointing out the animals and making the relevant noises. She smiles and responds when she gets a noise and animal to match. I think her Daddy would like me to buy another one now as he has read it hundreds and hundreds of times!!
