Celebrate Miffy's 60th Birthday with this gorgeous anniversary edition!
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 was created in 1955, after Dick Bruna had told his one-year-old son stories about a little rabbit they had seen earlier in the dunes while on holiday. The first Miffy book was published in 1955, and since then, the whole world has shared in these simple but charming stories about a lovable little bunny.
Celebrate Miffy's 60th Birthday in this beautiful anniversary edition. Larger than the original hardback, this book is designed for sharing. Read together about Miffy's birthday party with her friends and family!
