But it?s much harder to get rich than either of them expects, whether it?s through selling rare creatures to the zoo, using a fortune-teller to find treasures, or making modern art. Through a stroke of luck, however, Moomin meets the love of his life, Snorkmaiden, and with her help he finds the self-confidence he needs to get his house back. The iconic first Moomin comic strip by Tove Jansson, Moomin and the Brigands is a thrilling introduction to the vibrant inhabitants of Moominvalley we?ve come to know and love.

Editorial Reviews

"Tove Jansson is one of the most imaginative and influential storytellers in modern history?an artist and writer of singular creative vision and a genius for rendering visible and comprehensible life?s subtlest nuances." ?Maria Popova, Brainpickings "In Jansson?s narratives, whether tilted to children or adults, a debate can be felt rustling under the surface: it?s between voices that speak for the open hand of compromise and diplomacy and those that see the truth as naked or nothing, wills that would rather do whatever the hell they like." ?James Guida, The New Yorker
