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.
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.
