About the Author

Tove Jansson was born in Helsingfors, Finland, in 1914. Her mother was a caricaturist who designed 165 of Finland's stamps and her father was a sculptor. She studied painting in Finland, Sweden and France, and subsequently became a book illustrator. Her extraordinary illustrative style is seen as a design classic the world over. Originally written in Swedish, the Moomintroll books have been translated into over 40 languages and adapted for television, film, radio and opera. Tove Jansson lived alone on a small island in the gulf of Finland, where most of her books were written. She died in 2001.

Reviews

Moominvalley in November (1971) by Tove Jansson, the eighth book about the Moomins, winds up the series, as six friends of Moominpappa and Moominmamma travel separately to their home, only to find that the Finn family Moomintroll is gone. The lonely Snufkin, Fillyjonk, Toft and the others eventually find the companionship they're seeking in each other. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring."-"Wall Street Journal""Tove Jansson . . . has a polished style, gentle humor, and an ever-fresh imagination. And her creatures, from the fussy Hemulen and Fillyjonk to cowering little Toft, are as delightful as ever."-Zena Sutherland, "Saturday Review""Drenched in atmosphere . . . The highly subtle narrative is frequently pure poetry."-"The Horn Book""Jansson knows as well as ever how to make the reader laugh; more than ever she underlines the sadness behind the smile. "Moominvalley in November" is full of . . . fun and tenderness."-"The Times Literary Supplment" (London)"More fantastic than "Alice in Wonderland," more compelling than "Charlotte's Web," and more mysterious than Nancy Drew."-"The Midwest Book Review""A lost treasure now rediscovered . . . A surrealist masterpiec
