Editorial Reviews

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 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 Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over sixty and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood. (
Sir Terry Pratchett)

Clever, gentle, witty, and completely engrossing. (
Jeff Smith, author of Bone)

[Tove Jansson] is a master. (
The Times Literary Supplement (London))

The most original works for children to be published since the
Pooh books, and possibly, since Alice. (Saturday Review)

You will declare yourself a citizen of Moominvalley and call the stories your own--the Moomin world is that compelling. (
Riverbank Review)

It's not just Tove Jansson's wonderfully strange fairytale world that so appeals but also her beautiful line work and exquisite sense of design. (
Lauren Child)

[Jansson was] a whiz of tomfoolery who was also a profound guide to the human heart. (
Shelley Jackson, LA Weekly) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
