dick bruna

My long list of favorite illustrators include a lot of children's book artists. One of my fave illustrators is Dick Bruna. I have been a fan of his Miffy books, along with his other characters, since being only wee tall. If we are ever in the Netherlands again, we will definitely have to make it a point to venture to the Dick Bruna Huis, a museum of all his art work... it must be amazing! I usually am not a fan of museum gift shops, but I think I could go buck wild in this one.

We love Nijntje! That's her name in the Netherlands (my daughter is 1/2 dutch) and we have like 10 of her books in Dutch. and various merchandise. It's like Elmo over here. Only much better...

You are right, the illustrations are so sweet. She's a cutie!!! :)

I love the simplicity of the artwork and how well it embodies childhood. That would be an awesome museum to visit!
