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.

I cannot emphasize my love of Tove Jansson and the magnificent Moomintrolls. Finn Family Moomintroll is one of my favorite books and the entire Moomintroll series (and comics) are truly magical.
