Moominland Midwinter (Original Design) #6

Author(s): Tove Jansson

Kids' Classics (fairy tales, poetry etc)

'This is snow,' Moomintroll whispered to himself.
Moomins always sleep through the winter - or they did until the year Moomintroll woke up and went exploring in the silent, snow-covered valley where the river used to scuttle along.

Product Information

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

Tove Jansson is one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. -- Sir Terry Pratchett

I was utterly blown away by this as a child. It transported me to an icy, magical world. -- Maggie O'Farrell

I love these editions - so beautifully produced, so solid and permanent, just as Tove Jansson deserved -- 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.
