VALE Dick Bruna

Dick Bruna, the Dutch illustrator and author, has died aged 89. He is best known as the creator of the Nijntje, known in English as Miffy.

The first Miffy book was published in 1955. The picture book is based on a story Bruna told his young son during a holiday, after they had seen a rabbit.

His books have been translated into more than 50 languages.

Utrecht, in the Netherlands, is home to the Miffy Museum, catering specifically for children aged between two and six.
