The history of Miffy

The first book about Miffy (named Nijntje in Dutch) was published in 1955. Her creator Dick Bruna recounts how, during a family holiday, he told his oldest son a story about the little bunny hopping around in the garden of their holiday home. He did some drawings of the little bunny, and Miffy was born.

Miffy has since appeared as the leading character in 32 books that have been translated into more than 50 languages and sold more than 85 million copies worldwide.
