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 34 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.

Review:

“Bright, digitized colors replace some of the darker shades of Jansson's earlier books, giving readers of a new generation a friendly footpath into Moominvalley.” ―Publishers Weekly

“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

“The adventures of the easygoing Moomintrolls have all the crispness and tart surprise of a lingonberry, thanks to Jansson's ineffably light touch, her uncanny sensitivity to universal childhood emotions, and her gift for terse, naturalistic dialogue.” ―Entertainment Weekly

“[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 & call the stories your own--Moomin world is that compelling.” ―Riverbank Review
