Of course I couldn't resist some Miffy souvenirs. When I was a kid I have alot of Dic Bruna's book, and I love them. I love then so much that my mother copied (by hand) some drawings, painted them with acrylics and then framed them. I'm sure that this infringes some laws of copyright, but back then when we didn't have access to photocopies we didn't think much abou that, and it was for personal use ; D
If you like Miffy visit the official site. You can shop, play, send Miffy cards and you can even download free colouring images (Oh boy times has changed...)
While looking for some cheese for my family I also bought this book. It's name is Pluk van de Petteflet by Annie M.G. Schmidt with illustrations by Fiep Westendorp. I thought that Wee and tania (there are some birds!) would enjoy this. Although you can visit the illustrator website I recommend that you visit the author site. You can even read a chapter on this book as well as see other book's illustrations. She said: "I myself always stayed eight years old. And I actually write for myself. I think that 's the whole point. I'm eight"
