“Off they went together, to view the gallery.”
The Book Fairies have been busy sharing copies of Miffy at the Gallery by Dick Bruna around many galleries in London! Who will be lucky enough to spot one?
About the book:
Miffy convinces her parents to take her to an art gallery. It is very exciting, Miffy sees paintings, a mobile and even a stone statue. At the end of the day Miffy decides she wants to be an artist when she’s grown up.
Award-winning UK poet, Tony Mitton, has worked closely with Dick Bruna’s Dutch publisher to create new translations for the classic Miffy stories that are true to the books’ original voice, and yet have a contemporary feel to the language that makes them appealing to the modern young audience. The translations beautifully convey the warmth and friendliness of the original Dutch whilst maintaining a style that is inimitably Miffy.
We love hearing from people who find the treats we leave behind. Here are some of the pics and messages we received today!
Not lucky enough to find one?
Get your hands on a copy in all good bookshops! If you’d rather order online, you can still support bookshops by ordering Miffy at the Gallery here from Bookshop.org.

Anyone can join in! Just grab some stickers and get hiding 🙂
