(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Stories From Moominvalley is a beautiful collection of three classic Moomin stories, based on Tove Jansson's original works.

Join Moomintroll, his charming family and his eclectic band of friends on a series of adventures in a picturesque land where anything can happen: a father can be washed away in a flood, electric Hattifatteners can appear on a desert island, and a hat with magical powers can transform a house into a jungle! Moomin lovers of all ages will delight at the stunning artwork that accompanies the lively, witty writing, and become fully immersed in the beautiful Moominvalley.

Sensitively adapted for a younger audience by Alex Haridi and Cecilia Davidsson, Stories From Moominvalley is both perfect as a gift and is a must-have for fans of Tove Jansson's enchanting world.


AUTHOR: Tove Jansson (1914 - 2001) was born in Helsinki to artist parents. She was to become a celebrated artist, political cartoonist and author, but she is best known as the creator of the Moomins, one of the most successful and beloved children's book series ever written. Inspired by summers spent on the islands off Finland and Sweden, Tove created the unique world of Moominvalley and all its inhabitants. The Moomins and The Great Flood, her first book to feature the Moomins, published in 1945. Tove went on to publish twelve Moomin books between 1945 and 1977, which have sold in their millions and been translated into over forty languages. In the 1950s the Moomins became a successful cartoon strip, which was to feature in newspapers all over the world. As the Moomins' fame grew, they began to appear in television series, plays, films and a varied merchandise program soon followed. Tove also painted throughout her life and wrote novels and short stories, including the acclaimed Summer Book. But the Moomin world was never far away. As Tove said, You feel a cold wind on your legs when you step outside Moomin Valley... In 1966, Tove received the Hans Christian Andersen Award for her lasting contribution to children's literature.
