Iconic children’s character Miffy was first drawn by Dutch artist Dick Bruna way back in 1955.
Inspired by Matisse, Miffy is drawn in a minimalist style, and it is her simple, clean lines and colours which have led to more than 85 million copies of the Miffy books being sold worldwide.
Today (Saturday 21st June) is Miffy‘s birthday. Her 59th birthday to be exact! And to celebrate we’re giving away 5 copies of Miffy‘s Garden. Many of the Miffy books have recently been updated for a modern audience by poet Tony Mitton and this is one of the lovely new versions!
The competition is open between now (21st June) and midnight on Sunday 22nd June 2014. The competition is open to UK residents only and the winners will be picked at random and announced next week.
Why not wish Miffy a happy birthday? She’d love to say hello and if you’re lucky she might even offer you a slice of carrot cake!
