Tales from Moominvalley
by tove jansson
A Special Collectors’ Edition Moomin Hardback lovingly restored to its original stunning design
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.
Featuring the much loved stories in Waterstone’s Oxfam bestseller, The Invisible Child and The Fir Tree – the Moomins’ gloriously funny and generous take on Christmas – Tales from Moominvalley collects together nine delightful Moomin short stories. Highlights include The Spring Tune (which Jarvis Cocker described as the best story about composing music) and The Last Dragon in the World, revealing the true essence of friendship. A perfect Christmas gift to complete the set of Moomin classics.
Tales from Moominvalley, the sixth novel in the Moomin series, was published in 1962. It has remained in print for over fifty years, appearing in more than fifty languages.
