In this charming new addition to the Miffy story, Miffy takes inspiration from a visit to an art museum and decides to become an artist herself. Looking at the colors and shapes of the world around her, she discovers what fun it can be to make pictures of the things she sees. By bedtime, her bedroom walls are covered with her wonderful artwork. An inspiring book for budding artists and a terrific introduction to the value of a visit to the art museum—Miffy will find new fans with this volume.
