Three final Moomin comics from Tove Jansson. The first "Moomin Winter" sees more unwanted guests especially the curious and secret spilling Nibling sending the Moomin household into atizzy of secrecy and closed doors. In "Moomin Under Sail," the Moomins find themselves without a new adventure until Too-Ticky's compass gives them the idea to build a boat and head tosea. Finally, we meet the Fuddler in "Fuddler's Courtship." Mymble captures poor Fuddler's heart and his bumbling drives her straight into the arms of Dr. Hatter, local psychiatrist. TheMoomin family does not fare well under the gaze of someone trained in correcting odd behavior.
TOVE JANSSON (1914-2001) was a legendary Finnish children's book author/artist and creator of theMoomins, who came to life in children's books, comic strips, theater, opera, film, radio, theme parks, and television.

Editorial Reviews

[Jansson's] strips, more than 800 in five years, stand as perennial classics of children's literature across the Nordic lands . . . Their belated recovery from crumbling newsprint into five eventual volumes seems almost as fantastical and life-affirming as the Moomin fables themselves.
