Moominpappa at Sea

by tove jansson

A Special Collectors’ Edition Moomin Hardback lovingly restored to its original stunning design

The Moomins set sail for a wild new adventure.

The Moomins, in case you didn’t know, are kind, philosophical creatures with velvety fur and smooth round snouts, who live in a tall blue house in a beautiful woodland valley beside the sea.

Moominpappa yearns to make a fresh start, to find a rocky island and lighthouse where he’ll feel alert and important again. And so the Moomins set sail for a new home. In Moominpappa at Sea they arrive at an island that proves as mysterious and wild as even Moominpappa had hoped. It even has a deserted lighthouse. But how is Moominmamma to grow her flowers and what strange fate befell the last keeper of the lighthouse? 

Moominpappa at Sea, the penultimate novel in the Moomin series, was published in 1965. It has remained in print for over fifty years, appearing in more than fifty languages. 

Tove Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults.
— Philip Pullman
