Description

An interactive little adventure that introduces several curious creatures who live in Moominvalley

Pre-readers can sharpen hand-eye coordination as they join Moomintroll's search for that rascal Little My, who has found a very clever hiding place. Along the way, they will meet Moomintroll's family and many friends. The funny names--from Snufkin to Fillyjonk--beg to be sounded out and repeated again and again.

This adorable board book introduces babies and preschoolers to beloved characters from Swedish author-illustrator Tove Jansson’s beloved Moominworld. Every book celebrates curiosity and promotes Moomin’s core values: imagination, tolerance, humor, friendliness, and independence.

In addition to her Moomin books, she also wrote several novels, drew comic strips and worked as a painter and illustrator.
