If you haven't met a Moomin yet, you're missing the most magical fun . . .
It's winter in Moominvalley and the Moomin family are deep in their Long Winter Sleep, waiting for the sound of Too-Ticky's barrel organ to rouse them, as it did every spring. But when a mysterious ratta-tattle wakes Moomintroll with a start, will he be brave enough to investigate the noise on his own? And what surprises will he find if he does venture outside?
On the anniversary of Tove Jansson’s first book, The Moomins and the Great Flood, we take a look back on her wartime creations and why they continue to resonate.
We all need a little guidance in life, and who better to turn to than Tove Jansson’s charming family of Moomintrolls and their diverse friends. From the secret to having courage to learning to be patient, here are our favourite life lessons from the Moomins.
