Our little lady E is quite simply mad about rabbits! As most of my friends, family and possibly readers already know, E was given a soft, fluffy, pink rabbit when she was first-born. The rabbit has since been dubbed as ‘Ninny’ and has become her lifelong friend which she insists on carrying about absolutely everywhere.
We actually have three ‘Ninny’ bunnies so that we are able to rotate the rabbits should they require washing or god forbid ever get lost. E is totally rabbit mad, she adores bunnies and would be quite happy to spend all day watching, reading or playing with rabbit related paraphernalia.
Miffy is a well-known and much-loved rabbit featured in a series of picture books drawn and written by the Dutch artist Dick Bruna. The original name, Nijntje, is a shortened version of the diminutive konijntje, meaning “little rabbit”.
The first Miffy book was produced in 1955 and since then almost thirty others have followed. In total Miffy has sold over 85 million copies which has led to two television series, a feature-length film and a vast array of merchandise which our little lady E loves to collect.

More About The Story

E and I read this book together, whilst she already knows her colours she was so taken by the images that this has book has now become a firm favourite. I too love the images, narrative and rhyming verse featured throughout this book.
