The magic of Tove Jansson's bestselling Moomin picture book has been re-crafted in English to launch Sort of Children's Classics (for readers four to infinity). Follow Moomin's adventures in verse, through amazing full colour, cut-out pages as he helps Mymble find their little sister My.

About the Author

The writer and artist Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is a Scandinavian national treasure: she has a museum dedicated to her work in her native Finland, and the Moomin characters adorn everything from mugs to schoolbags. Elsewhere, Moomin stories have been published in 35 languages. Sophie Hannah is that rare thing: an acclaimed and best-selling poet. Her first book was greeted with amazement. The Poetry Review declared, 'Shall I put it in capitals? SOPHIE HANNAH IS A GENIUS.' Each subsequent collection has been informally more inventive, thematically more complex, yet each has met with a similar welcome. Her latest book, 'First of the Last Chances', was published in 2003.
