Description

Finnish artist Tove Jansson’s Moomin stories have been continually in print for more than half a century, in 35 languages. They are among Europe’s best loved and enduring children’s classics, and through the TV animation (BBC2), the warm-hearted, whimsical creatures of Moomin valley have been brought to a new younger British audience.

Introducing the first Sort Of Children’s Classic in a new English version by Sophie Hannah. Sort of Books proudly presents the original full colour Moomin picture book with its irresistible cut-out page designs and playful rhyming text in a new version by one of Britain’s star poets.
