The Lovereading4Kids comment
This highly desirable, collectible classic series has been updated for a new generation by award-winning poet, Tony Mitton. Miffy has a sibling and it's a little strange...Will mama bunny still love her? A lovely book that's full of reassurance.
Small, square and always with a robust, hardback cover, Dick Bruna’s iconic picture books about the little white bunny called Miffy, have been treasured by millions of British households since they were first published in the UK in the early Sixties. Excitingly, for the first time in almost 50 years, the rhyming verse in each Miffy story in Bruna’s bestselling children’s storybooks has been refreshed for a modern British audience - by award-winning children's author and poet, Tony Mitton to suit the ears of today’s toddlers and pre-schoolers. Alongside the new texts, Dick Bruna’s illustrations – simple, bold and timeless – remain the same throughout.
Miffy and the New Baby by Dick Bruna
Miffy is filled with joy - she is going to have a new baby brother or sister! She makes a few presents for the baby. When Baby Bunny is born, Miffy is speechless - she didn't realise the baby would be so tiny.

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.
