Storybook Heroes No 2: Miffy

Meet the brilliant fictional characters who have become timeless classics in the world of children's books

Miffy by Dick Bruna

Name Miffy Bun, pet name Min (Nijntje in her native Dutch)

Born Utrecht, 1955

Defining moment After a divine visitation by an angel, Miffy is born. "The Bunny pair were overjoyed. Quite soon the baby came. WIth ears so long and fur so white and Miffy was her name."

Why we love Miffy

* She's so sweet and innocent - makes you want to say "aah" and give her a cuddle. (Handily, there's a cute range of soft toys so your child can do just that!). Surely, she's the ultimate Bunny Girl!

* The stories are always gentle and reassuring, even when dealing with difficult topics like being in hospital or death of a loved one, all perfectly pitched for the youngest audience.

* She's brave and heroic, cute but not too girly: she wants to be a pilot and make things like her Grandpa (When I'm Big); hangs out at art galleries (Miffy, erm, At The Gallery) and, in true toddler fashion, thinks nothing of whipping off all her clothes (Miffy In The Tent). 

* Bruna's distinct bold artwork is really groovy, inspired by his favourite artist, Matisse.  

Miffy by Dick Bruna is published by Egmont.
