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.

Moomintroll - Tove Jansson. Moomintroll series were my favourite childhood books. I hope to pass the love of these books on to my kids.
