about

Tove Jansson is revered worldwide as one of the foremost children''s authors of the 20th century for her illustrated chapter books revealing the magical worlds of the Moomins, her creation. The Moomins debuted in 1954 to their biggest audience in the world''s largest newspaper, the London Evening News. First in a series, Moomin Book One is the first publication of the strip in any form in North America. It will place Jansson among the cartooning greats of the last century. The Moomins are a tight-knit family--hippo-shaped creatures with easy-going and adventurous outlooks. Jansson''s art is pared down and precise, yet able to compose beautiful portraits that recall Jansson''s Nordic roots. The comic strip reached out to adults with its gentle and droll sense of humour.
Tove Jansson (1914-2001) was a legendary Finnish children''s book author/artist and creator of the Moomins, who came to life in children''s books, comic strips, theatre, opera, film, radio, theme parks and TV.
