Special Collectors' Edition Hardback

Moomins always sleep through the winter while the snow settles all around them, waking up in time for spring and the arrival of Snufkin and other friends.

Or they did until one year when Moomintroll happened to wake up and find himself all alone in a sleepy, dusty house in a silent, snow-covered valley.

In this moving story of a small, brave Moomin finding his way in the mysterious world of winter we discover that there are always new friends to be found - like the calm and wise Too-ticky and the irrepressible Little My - and new ways to play and be kind.

"I love these editions - so beautifully produced, so solid and permanent, just as Tove Jansson deserved" - Philip Pullman

"Tove Jansson is one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been" - Sir Terry Pratchett

Created by Swedish-speaking Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson, the Moomins have been enchanting readers around the world since the first Moomin story, Moomins and the Great Flood, appeared in 1945. Now her stories are amongst the best-loved in the world, celebrating themes of love, tolerance and equality mixed with a good dose of common sense.

Explore our range of Moomin books, games and gifts and get lost in the wonderful world of the Moomins on our Moomin Page.
