The Moomins Trio

In a beautiful valley far away live the Moomins: a family of roundish, gentle, wide-snouted creatures who love to explore nature! Join these eccentric creatures in three magical tales which serve as the perfect introduction to this most-loved fictional family. Moomintroll is the smallest – the one who loves to sneak away on daring expeditions with his friends Snufkin and Sniff. Meanwhile, Moominmamma and Moominpappa keep house in the beautiful Finnish forest valley, full of animals, flowering trees and the clearest mountain rivers. From expeditions in the snow to a brush with a baby dragon, little Moomintroll is always having adventures. But what will happen when a comet threatens the valley? Can Moomintroll help to save his home?

“They seem to grow in wisdom and delight every time I read them… a perfect marriage of word and picture.” Philip Pullman

“The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” Wall Street Journal

“The magical adventures of the innocent Moomin family have the whimsical, surrealistic quality of Frank Baum’s Oz books.” Chicago Parent magazine
