The Invisible Child and The Fir Tree Summary

The Invisible Child and The Fir Tree by Tove Jansson

The Invisible Child - a book to change lives- is a unique collaboration between The Moomins, Oxfam, Waterstones and Sort of Books. This highly collectable edition contains two of Tove Jansson's best loved Moomin stories with a specially commissioned Moomin gallery, compliled by bestselling children's author Philip Ardagh. A truly beautiful volume, it will raise money for projects that fight inequality and help women and girls everywhere escape from poverty, abuse and neglect. In The Invisible Child the isolated Ninny is helped to regain her voice and take her rightful place in the world using a simple Moomin recipe. She is welcomed into the Moomin family and treated with equality and respect. This is one of the most touching of all Moomin stories and is paired in this unique gift book with The Fir Tree, the Moomins' gloriously unselfish take on Christmas. Alongside these two classic stories, which are taken from Jansson's 1962 short story collection Tales of Moominvalley, this gift edition also includes an exclusive Moomin Gallery, featuring the characters of Moominvalley, compiled by Philip Ardagh.

About Tove Jansson

The Finnish artist and author Tove Jansson (1914-2001) wrote and illustrated her first Moomin story, The Moomins and the Great Flood, in 1945 as a form of escape from the dark shadows of war. By 1962, when the sixth Moomin novel Tales of Moominvalley (from which The Invisible Child and The Fir Tree are taken) was published her books had become world famous. The eight Moomin titles would be translated into over sixty languages and remain in print for the next six decades. Tove Jansson lived in Helsinki and a tiny island in the Gulf of Finland which she shared with her life partner, the graphic artist, Tuulikki Pietila .
