Melanie in her blue dress
Melanie, is Miffy's pen friend. Miffy is a fictional rabbit appearing in a series of picture books drawn and written by Dutch artist Dick Bruna. The original Dutch name, "Nijntje & Nina".
Miffy is drawn in a graphic style, with minimalist black graphic lines. Bruna chose to only use black, white, the primary colors (red, yellow and blue), green, orange, brown, and grey. It is his use of primarily primary colors that makes Miffy instantly recognisable, and also popular with preschoolers, because of her bright and intense simplistic colors.
