Moomin and the New Friend

When Moomintroll and Sniff find a message in a bottle down on the shore, it leads to an expedition to Lonely Island on a little raft. High winds and a storm at sea nearly lead to disaster but they are rescued by a new friend, the ever-resourceful Too-Ticky. Moomintroll's close friend, Snorkmaiden, is jealous but she soon learns that finding a new friend doesn't mean losing an old one. A magical picture book about the Moomins based on the art and characters created by Tove Jansson.

Moomin and the Winter Snow

Winter has come to Moominvalley which means that it's time for Moomintroll's best friend, Snufkin, to travel south. All the excitement of the falling snow does nothing to comfort Moomintroll whose sadness at his friend's departure is movingly captured in Tove Jansson's illustrations. What will make him feel better? Gently exploring the nature of friendship, this is a picture book for all ages.

Moomin and the Wishing Star

When Moomintroll finds a beautiful shiny pebble, Snorkmaiden thinks it might be a star - and if it is a star, then Moomin can make a wish! But wishes are difficult things to get right, and while Moomin worries about what his wish will be, the star's shine begins to fade.

Moomin and the Moonlight Adventure

It had been raining for days in Moominvalley, but now the clouds had cleared and it was a fine day for an adventure. Moomintroll was excited - he and Snorkmaiden and Little My, Moominpappa and Moominmamma, were all going to sail to Lonely Island to look for treasure! But by the time everyone was ready to leave, the sun had set and night had fallen. Would they ever be able to find any treasure just by the light of the moon?

Moomin and the Favourite Thing

When Moominpappa gives Moomintroll a special telescope, Moomintroll is delighted, and doesn't want to have to share it with anyone. His friends slowly get bored and leave him alone. Suddenly, Moomintroll realises that nothing is as fun without your friends to enjoy it with - will he be able to make it up with them?

Moomin and the Birthday Button

The Moomin family and their friends are the delightful creation of Tove Jansson, and are full of a particular humour and magic that has enchanted generations of children and adults alike. Using the author's original characters and artwork, Moomin and the Birthday Button is part of a stunning new range of children's titles launching in the year of the Moomins' 65th anniversary celebrations. In this, the first of a new series of picture books, Moomintroll wakes up full of excitement. It's his birthday! But when it appears that his friends have forgotten all about his special day, Moomintroll is very upset. Even Moominmamma finds it hard to comfort him! Then there's a knock at the door . . . Who can it be, and what will happen next?

About Author

Tove Jansson was born and died in Helsinki, Finland. As a Finnish citizen whose mother tongue was Swedish, she was part of the Swedish-speaking Finns minority. Thus, all her books were originally written in Swedish. Although known first and foremost as an author, Tove Jansson considered her careers as author and painter to be of equal importance. Tove Jansson wrote and illustrated her first Moomin book, The Moomins and the Great Flood (1945), during World War II. She said later that the war had depressed her, and she had wanted to write something naive and innocent. Besides the Moomin novels and short stories, Tove Jansson also wrote and illustrated four original and highly popular picture books.
