Moominland Midwinter Reviews


"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 Tove Jansson


Tove Jansson was born in Finland in 1914. She began her career as a cartoonist and went on to write and illustrate many books for adults and children. She drew her first Moomin in the 1930s, just for fun, and in 1945 he became a character in a children'story. Tove became world-famous for her Moomin books, which began with The Moomins and the Great Flood in 1945, closely followed by Comet in Moominland in 1946, Finn Family Moomintroll in 1948 and six more Moomin adventures. During the winter months Tove lived and worked in Helsinki, but in the summertime she stayed on a beautiful remote island in the Gulf of Finland with her long-term partner, the artist Tuulikki Pietila. Tove Jansson received many prestigious awards during her lifetime, including the international Hans Christian Andersen Medal. She died in 2001, aged eighty-seven.
