Finn Family Moomintroll (Original Design)

Author(s): Tove Jansson

Kids Retro Classics

In case you didn't know, the Moomins are kind, loyal and welcoming creatures with smooth round snouts, who live in a tall blue house shaped like an old stove in a valley in the forests of Finland. They love sunshine and sleep right through the winter, when the snow turns their house into a great snowball. In spring they wake up, clamber down the rope ladders hanging from their windows ready for fresh new adventures.


And so this classic story begins, full of fun and excitement and the most unexpected happenings. Such as when Moomin and his friends Snufkin and Sniff find a Hobgoblin's hat that casts a spell over the whole of Moominvalley...

Product Information

Special Collectors' Edition lovingly restored to its original stunning design.

"A freshness and originality that have hardly ever been matched. Tove Jansson should have had the Nobel Prize." -- Philip Pullman

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. With the publication of The Finn Family Moomintroll, her third and best loved title, she became a worldwide sensation. Her eight Moomin chapter books would be translated into over 60 languages and remain in print for over 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.
