MIffy The Artist (Lift The Flap) by Dick Bruna
Brand Tate Publishing
Ever since Dick Bruna first created Miffy in 1955, she has endeared herself to generations of young children. She is now one of the best-loved children's characters of all time. In this charming new addition to her story, Miffy takes inspiration from a visit to an art gallery and decides to become an artist herself. Looking at the colour and shapes of the world around her she discovers what fun it can be to make pictures of the things she sees. By bedtime, her walls are full of all her wonderful artworks. With sturdy cardboard flaps and hidden pictures to discover, this book is the perfect gift for budding young artists.
As far back as I can remember, and I am 81 years old now, I have always loved art... after the war, I went to Paris, and there I discovered the great works of Matisse, Picasso, Léger and Braque. This was the turning point in my life. I came back to the Netherlands, knowing that I wanted to be an artist, and full of inspiration based on the artistic styles I had seen. In a way, the simple story of Miffy The Artist encapsulates what happened to me. I hope it inspires parents to introduce art to their children as early as possible! - Dick Bruna
