Miffy is a delightful little character that was created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna in 1955. To keep his young son entertained whilst it was raining at the family's holiday house in North Holland, Dick would sketch and make up stories about a little bunny that he had seen hopping around the yard. Hence, Miffy (or nijntie in Dutch) was born. Miffy is a simple, hand drawn rabbit with long white ears, two dots for eyes and a cross-shaped mouth. Her physique has evolved over time and her stories have become the best selling children's book series in Holland as well as being published in more than 50 languages. Miffy turned 60 on 21 June 2015.
This story is close to my heart as my late Father was born in the same town as Dick Bruna in Utrecht.
