9780140305029: Moominland Midwinter (Puffin Books)

'This is snow,' Moomintroll whispered to himself.

Moomins always sleep through the winter - or they did until the year Moomintroll woke up and went exploring in the silent, snow-covered valley where the river used to scuttle along and all his friends were so busy in summer.

Review:

“The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” —"Wall Street Journal"“This book is a marvelous new look at a time of year when many of us are huddling inside, trying to stay warm, and a good reminder during a hot summer of what to look forward to in a few short months.”    —"The Green Man Review"“Timeless . . . Perfect for reading aloud . . . The magical adventures of the innocent Moomin family have the whimsical, surrealistic quality of Frank Baum’s Oz books.”   — "Chicago"" Parent"“The Moomins originated in Finland, found their way to England, and have now, happily, crossed the Atlantic. One couldn’t ask for more engaging citizens.”   —"The Christian Science Monitor"“The books . . . belong on the shelf next to classics like "A Wrinkle in Time" and "The Phantom Tollbooth."”   —"Entertainment

About the Author:

Tove Jansson was born in Helsingfors, Finland, in 1914. Her mother was a caricaturist who designed 165 of Finland's stamps and her father was a sculptor. She studied painting in Finland, Sweden and France, and subsequently became a book illustrator. Her extraordinary illustrative style is seen as a design classic the world over. Originally written in Swedish, the Moomintroll books have been translated into over 40 languages and adapted for television, film, radio and opera. Tove Jansson lived alone on a small island in the gulf of Finland, where most of her books were written. She died in 2001.
