Special Collector's Edition Hardback

In case you didn't know, the Moomins are kind, loyal and welcoming creatures with smooth round snouts, who live in a tall blue house shaped like an old stove in a valley in the forests of Finland.

They love sunshine and sleep right through the winter, when the snow turns their house into a great snowball. In spring they wake up, clamber down the rope ladders hanging from their windows ready for fresh new adventures.

And so this classic story begins, full of fun and excitement and the most unexpected happenings. Such as when Moomin and his friends Snufkin and Sniff find a Hobgoblin's hat that casts a spell over the whole of Moominvalley...

“Moominterlude”

Hurrah for the Moomins! They’re the sweetest fellows you could ever hope to meet. Imagine a kind of small white hippo, with long tails and stumpy little arms and legs. They hibernate in the winter, but in the... More
