Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition, by Tove Jansson
If you or your kids aren’t familiar with the Moomintroll stories, this is the perfect opportunity to fall in love. In honor of what would have been Jansson’s 100th birthday, Drawn and Quarterly has released a gorgeous slip-covered collection of 21 of her best comics stories, including “Moomin on the Riviera,” “ Moomin Builds a House,” and “Moomin and the Comet.” Similar in tone to the Winnie the Pooh books, the Moomins are a little more melancholy, a teensy bit more clever, and they radiate hygge. The book comes in a beautiful slipcover and includes a poster. An absolutely beautiful package that will look great wrapped or unwrapped.
