The Moomins and the Great Flood by Tove Jansson - All kids should get to know the Moomins

Tove Jansson’s first ever Moomin book ‘The Moomins and the Great Flood’. Tove Jansson began writing the book in War had broken out, and the 25 year old Finnish writer was thinking about a different world, one not shot through with fear and hatred.

One of Tove Jansson's own original illustrations of her "Groke" character in the Moomintroll books.

These are some of the spirits of the Forest. Every year they gather for a picnic and poses for a family photo.  They are hand drawn with ink by me, then scanned

I love the bold graphics in Tove Jansson's pictures for her book Who Will Comfort Toffle? If you have never read any Moomin books, I urge you to do so.

I agree with this description. Forget the spooky stop motion cartoon. It's all about the eight original books and Tove Jansson's pen and ink drawings. I would choose these as my luxury on desert island discs.
