About Dick Bruna and Miffy
Miffy was “born” on June 21, 1955, when Dutch artist Dick Bruna first drew the character to entertain his young son whilst on a rainy seaside holiday in Holland. The series of picture books which followed used simple illustrations and rhyming text to explore the universal experiences of childhood, immediately earning Bruna international critical acclaim as an author and artist.
Sixty-two years later, the Miffy books have sold more than 85 million copies, and are currently published in more than 50 languages. Merchandise is sold across five continents, there are several musicals, a Miffy movie and a TV series – season 1 and 2 of the new HD CGI Miffy’s Adventures: Big and Small has had a recent global roll out, and season 3 is in the making for release in 2017.
