Review:

“The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” —"Wall Street Journal"“Fillyjonks, Mymbles, Hemulens, Moomins, Woodies, and creeps dance through the pages, bringing a refreshingly alive, original world to life.”    —"The Green Man Review"“Beautifully written and illustrated.”    —"The Sunday Times" (London)“The books . . . belong on the shelf next to classics like "A Wrinkle in Time" and "The Phantom Tollbooth."”   —"Entertainment Weekly" “A lost treasure now rediscovered . . . A surrealist masterpiece.”   —Neil Gaiman“Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal.”   —Philip Pullman“Tove Jans

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.
