First ever Moomins app launched

The first ever Moomins app has been launched by Sort Of Books, in association with Finnish developers, Spinfy. The app is a beautifully simple adaptation of Tove Jansson’s original picture book, The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My. Jansson wrote and designed the book in 1952, using cut-outs on each page to guide the reader through the story – Moomin’s journey through the forest. The approach works perfectly as a structure for the app and young children will delight in reading it over and over.  Or listening over and over, as the app is also a talking book, with the story read by actor and long-term Moomin fan, Sam West. The app is available through the Apple app store and can be used on any iPad, iPhone or iTouch. It will, we hope, soon be available for other platforms.
