My sister and I used to read his books when we were little and loved getting them each week for the library.  it was a cornerstone for many a child of the sixties, seventies and beyond.  It was the forerunner to Beatrix Potter and Enid Blyton for me.  Such cornerstones of childhood truly bedded in.

Dearest Dick Bruna died in his sleep in Utrecht, at the age of 89 - thank you for your stories :-)
