The Lovereading4Kids comment
How do flowers grow? What can Miffy do to help? Miffy experiences the pleasures of gardening for the first time...
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's Garden by Dick Bruna
Father Bunny suggests Miffy creates her own garden so she digs the earth, sows some carrot seeds and then watches them grow. When they are ready, she is very excited to harvest them. Mother Bunny cooks them for their tea and they are delicious!
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.
