- Moomin Graphic Novels

'Moomin: The Complete Comic Strip, Volume 1, by Tove Jansson & Fair Play, by Tove Jansson, trans. Thomas Teal. To write fiction well for children and for the child in all adults takes a variety of gifts, among them directness and lucidity with words and emotions, and the courage to keep them clean of pretence. This becomes especially true when crafting illustrated stories, where pictures as well as words do the telling and both need to enhance each other. For those who have delighted in the depths which Tove Jansson achieved through her beloved Moomin tales, these two books reveal how, throughout her life, she refined her narrative skills, first for her comics, and then for her adult novels.

Moomin - The Complete Comic Strip Vol 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 £14.99 each.

"In a children's book there must be a path where the author stands still and the child walks on. A threat or a wonder that is never explained. A face that never shows itself entire." (Tove Jansson)
