Miffy

Miffy the picture-book bunny was one of those books that always seemed to be around, but who the devil owned one? Found in school libraries and car boot sales, Miffy wasn’t a Japanese cartoon like many believed, but was a creation from 1955 by Dutch artist Dick Bruna.

Miffy was a little rabbit that found itself in very basic adventures.
