About the Author
Praise For The Book about Moomin, Mymble and Little My…
"From the bold colors and oddball creatures to expressive variations in font and inventive die-cuts, the book remains a kid-friendly package and a wonderfully weird vision."
--Publishers Weekly "A joy. This brilliant new edition has a translation by Sophie Hannah (a wonderful poet in her own right) and her text teases and beguiles at every turn.... Three cheers."
--Kate Kellaway, The Observer
