To know the Moomins was to know Tove [Jansson]. She poured her wit, dreams and fears into the characters.The Economist
“[Moomin is] a quirky, original comic strip masterpiece.”—Myla Goldberg, author of Bee Season
Moomin Book 9: 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 a damsel in distress can live in a pre-fabricated castle. The ninth volume of Tove and Lars Jansson’s classic comic strip features the beloved “Fuddler and Married Life” story. Together, the four stories in this collection display the poignancy, whimsy, and philosophical bent that constitute the Moomins’ enduring appeal.
