Additional Information

In the second volume of Tove Jansson's humorous yet melancholic Moomin comic strip, we get four new stories about jealousy, competition, child rearing, and self-reinvention. The Moomins try to hibernate in the fashion of their ancestors but insomnia places them smack-dab into a winter carnival with the winter-sports-loving Mr. Brisk. The fickle and eternally lovestruck Mymble and Snorkmaiden find themselves in competition over a thrilling new man. Moominmamma meets her new neighbor, the Fillyjonk, causing her to hire the depressed and secretive Misabel as her new maid. Mymble's mother arrives on the Moomin family's doorstep with her seventeen new children. Finally, a prophet arrives on the scene declaring that the happy Moomins are in fact not happy at all and need to get back to nature and be free. Moomin, of course, becomes more and more miserable the freer he gets.

Moomin is one of the most brilliant, quirky, funny and thoughtful comic strips ever made. Cleverly drawn, highly imaginative writing. Of Swedish origin myself I was lucky enough to grow up with Moomin, and also to find a complete set of the original 10 Moomin books (in Swedish) many years ago. I have always loved the characters, their adventures, interesting philosophies and opinions, and interpretations of the world, etc. I am very happy that these books (the first two at least) are finally re-issued in English so my kids can read them, and the rest of the US. Highly recommended to both young and old. Please buy the first and second book, so the publisher releases the other 8 books too.
Tove Jansson's Moomin is a delight and a pleasure. The characters are beautifully drawn and interact with complex human emotions, but their stories are told in such a simple way that children can enjoy the book quite easily. This comes HIGHLY recommended.
I was introduced to the Moomintroll books by Tove Jansson(a popular Finnish author,) many years ago. These are some of the most charming, well-written and engaging stories for children I've ever encountered. I subsequently shared all the books with my daughter, who also fell in love with the whole Moomin Valley collection of creatures. (My 92-year-old mother still enjoys reading the chapter books!)
I had never seen the comic strips, and was delighted to find them. Though they lack the literary finesse of the longer books, they are still charming and funny, and full of wit and satire- displaying through these fanciful critters all the frailties of human behavior. Great for children of all ages.
