About the Author

Dick Bruna

Dick Bruna was born in Utrecht on 23 August 1927 – the year of the rabbit, according to the Japanese zodiac. As the son of a publisher, Dick was introduced to books and authors at an early age. He grew up in Zeist, surrounded by chickens, rabbits, dogs and a goat, and enjoyed a wonderful childhood with his brother Frits.

Though he began by training in publishing, Dick really wanted to be an artist, drawing inspiration from the bold use of colour by masters such as Leger and Matisse. After marrying his wife Irene in 1952, Dick took up a permanent position as a designer in the family’s publishing firm, A.W. Bruna & Zoon.

In 1975, Dick decided to work for himself, and the Miffy series really took off. He also started accepting poster and card commissions for organisations including Unicef, the Netherlands Red Cross, The Hague, Amnesty International and the Netherlands Dairies.

Now 87 years old, Dick Bruna continues to delight children and adults the world over with his enchanting drawings and stories. His work has won numerous awards and has featured in many prestigious exhibitions around the world.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
