Moomin has been swiftly making its way into the hearts of North Americans ever since Drawn & Quarterly began collecting the strip in 2006.

Fifty years ago, Jansson's observations of everyday life-whimsical but with biting undertones-easilycaught the attention of an international audience and still resonate today.This third volume returns to Moominvalley, where its beloved inhabitants get tangled up in five new stories.

Editorial Reviews

[Jansson's] work soars with lightness and speed, and her drawings only echo her writing: delicate but precise, observant yet suggestive . . . Jansson was exceptional, an exuberant explorer of emotional independence and interdependence, a liberating force.
