To know the Moomins was to know Tove [Jansson]. She poured her wit, dreams and fears into the characters.The Economist
“Moomin is about freedom, tolerance, and optimism amid frustration, loss, and fear.”—Modern Painters
Moomin Book Ten: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip welcomes readers back to the beloved world of Moominvalley, where pancakes and jam are a perfectly acceptable supper and wealthy aunts can be altogether too fierce to handle. The tenth volume of Tove and Lars Jansson’s classic comic strip features the macabre and hilarious “Moomin and the Vampire” and “The Underdeveloped Moomins” story. Together, the four stories in this collection display the poignancy, whimsy, and philosophical bent that constitute the Moomins’ enduring appeal.
