Tales from Moominvalley
Written and Illustrated by TOVE JANSSON
Translated by THOMAS WARBURTON
For confirmed Moominfans here is further evidence of the author's ability to lure her readers into the realms of the whimsical and the fantastic; for converts a delightful introduction to the inspired Moominworld.
Many of the familiar characters are here again; Snufkin and Sniff, Too-ticky and Little My, and the Hattifatteners; to say nothing of the inimitable Moomin and his family—including that considerable personality Moominpappa, with his now famous hat.
However, apart from the many new adventures with old friends there are a number of characters to be seen for the first time: a delightful near-canine named Cedric, some new Fillyjonk relations, and the Hemulens figure prominently, while quite the most inspired of the many new creations is the Invisible Child.
'The author supplements in such an amazing way her wizardry at the drawing board with a subtle art of story-telling translated into English by Thomas Warburton who captures every fascinating moment that this Finnish genius presents. ' -Evening News
