Synopsis

Miffy's Dream by Dick Bruna

In this beautiful, wordless picture book Miffy dreams she meets another bunny high up in the sky. The two become friends and play together amongst the clouds. Award-winning UK poet, Tony Mitton, has worked closely with Dick Bruna's Dutch publisher to create new translations for the classic Miffy stories that are true to the books' original voice, and yet have a contemporary feel to the language that makes them appealing to the modern young audience. The translations beautifully convey the warmth and friendliness of the original Dutch whilst maintaining a style that is inimitably Miffy.

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.
