Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Book Six

Lars Jansson

June 2011

After the multifaceted Tove Jansson quit the daily grind of the newspaper comic strip, the reins were picked up by her younger brother, Lars, who--not being an artist--taught himself how to draw so that he could continue bringing the Moomin charm to millions of readers around the world. He wrote and drew the strip from 1961-1974. Without missing a beat, the transition from Tove to Lars was seamless. The delightful and gentle skewering of life's foibles continues with such antics as Moomin becoming a vegetarian; the genie from a magic lamp delivering stolen diamonds; a railway through Moominvalley turning into a roller coaster; and, of course, hijinks with international spies invading Moominvalley.
